Here are some comments from a number of teens who participated in Anna's events:

"Thank you for making this retreat a great one. I love your methods of getting across to me. You showed me a side of myself that I haven't seen for a while. Your presentations were fun and very interesting." -Sara


"Before I came I was somewhat skepical about how much fun this would be and how much I would learn. But as it turned out, I learned a lot and had a lot of fun." -Andrew

"Thank you for this retreat. The way you used music to reach us was very good. I like how you had us interact with each other rather than just lecture us for all of that time." -Adrienne


"Thank you so much for being here with us. Your presentations have meant a lot to me. Every session I was challenged, each time in a different way." -Lindsey

"Thank you for giving the encouraging presentations to us all. Thanks for making it easy to meet new friends and for making me and everyone feel at ease. You are very talented." -Mari


"I just want to thank Anna for the grad retreat. I thought it was going to be another school function where we sit for so long, but you had us in groups talking about our future and fears of graduating and I thought it was great how you worked music into the retreat I felt different about the songs you played. It made me have a feeling of hope and achivement." -Jeff

And here are some comments from adults who participated in Anna's events:

"I was fortunate to hear you speak in Toronto on Thursday morning. You lifted my heart so much that it really turned my week around. I came to World Youth Day like so many to see the Holy Father. After listening to you on that Thursday I felt alive and full of the Holy Spirit. I have come back to my hometown in Central New York singing your praises. Thank you for the lifting of my spirit and the encourgment to have a wonderful week at World Youth Day. I will never forget you and your gentle way of reaching the youth." -Larie
