Deacon 2018

First Annual

Community Graduation Celebration

Thursday June 21, 2018

The community graduation celebration is an annual event that demonstrates to our community members that their achievements at all levels have value to our community and that all levels of achievement should be celebrated. We have kicked off this annual event in 2018. 

We believe that by celebrating and honoring our communities’ achievements we encourage an environment for lifetimes of learning, which will continuously better Santa Fe and surrounding areas for future generations. Our communities' accomplishments deserve to be recognized. These types of uplifting public events are also a testament to the the talent and education that the community members of Santa Fe hold to local government to encourage local recruitment versus out of state recruitment for positions.


This year, we unveiled our "It Takes a Village Award" in honor of Susan Duncan. This award was created in honor of Susan Duncan to recognize very special champions of children and families in Santa Fe who have been working for decades to create a more healthy, just, and sustainable community.

Deacon Anthony Trujillo 

A dedicated husband, father, Deacon, faith leader, friend, mentor and youth advocate. He has been serving Santa Fe's youth, families and parishes in one form or another for 50 years. His ministries have included leading Catholic education and youth development at the level of parish as well as diocese, heading the Juvenile Justice Board, advocating for investment in youth programming at the city and county levels, supporting incarcerated youth and their families, supporting Hispano leadership development programs, mentoring thousands of youth, serving as interpreter in various settings, advocating for immigrant and worker justice, and always having the time to just sit and listen. He is currently assigned to San Isidro Parish. 

We honor Deacon Anthony for his unending dedication to the young people of Santa Fe and for his love of justice and beloved community. We look up to his work and strive to emulate his commitment to building a better world by investing in the dreams of our young people and families.
