Saint Anne's Helper (St. Anne's Helper) is our personal apostolate to share the treasures of the Catholic Faith with others. Welcome!
Our website can accept advertising and receives other forms of compensation. Such compensation does not influence the information in this site nor does it affect the price of products you purchase through our site. We always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences.
"Ads by Google" are not selected by us, they are loosely related to keywords on our page and to your personal search activity or the activity of others who use your computer.
If you see a Google ad and a web page link about the same product or service, it is a coincidence of Google's algorithm and your search history (which can be a big help). We have restricted our Google account as tightly as we know to display only family safe ads and we continue to block the addresses that we find that we do not want displayed on our site - the best we can catch. If you find Google ads that are not appropriate for a Catholic site we appreciate your copying the address link (in your browser if the very light touch Google ad took you to the site already) and contacting us with that same address.
Contact Us about Ads contrary to Catholicism. Please include ad link.
We only accept non-Google sponsorships from providers of high-quality goods or services; and other Catholic sellers.

The actual content on sponsored pages are independent of any sponsorship or affiliate relationship (at this time, 2013, we have had no "sponsored" pages), we use different companies to provide pictures, links, and sales that we think will benefit our visitors. To avoid the appearance of any conflict of interest and in the spirit of full disclosure, we identify all sponsored content to you. It is mainly recognizable when you click a link or picture that lands on an item for sale.
We recommend what has helped us to live a happy Catholic family life, and we would like you to have the same grace. This site takes time and effort to deliver original content, free, to you.
