Welcome to St. Anthony's 

As the parish family of St. Anthony of Padua Church we are committed to enrich our love of God, through our Lord, Jesus Christ, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.   Our sacramental life is centered in the real presence of Jesus as we continue to challenge ourselves to continue to grow as a community of faith.  Through our prayers, worship, education and fellowship, our goal is to put God first as thankful stewards by sharing our time, talent and treasure in our service of God for all people.



I have baptized you with water, He will baptize  you with the Holy Spirit                 Mark 1:8

Hard times requires sacrifice

As you may already know, our parish has been hit extra hard these past two years. First, we lost our tenant at the school and have been looking for a new tenant for nearly two years. Then, the pandemic hit and we had to close the church and bingo (a huge source of income for us). At this time, we have had to close bingo again for a period of time. With this loss of income we can only rely  on ourselves to pick up the slack. Please be generous – the Lord will bless us. It is written “give and it shall be given you, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together and running over shall men pour into your
bosom.” These are the words of the Lord.

Sign in Sheet

It is mandated and very important for reasons of contact tracing at this trying time during the pandemic that everyone entering the church for mass or any other occasion must sign in with your name and number. Please use the sign in sheet when you enter in the vestibule.

To donate, just place the gift card in the collection or call the rectory. Be sure to donate in small amounts of no more than $25 each. Thank you for your generosity.  “God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Cor 9:7

Introducing our Wishlist 2021

As you can imagine, the pandemic has set us back a bit, but we have a vision! A vision for our parish to grow strong as never before. You can help! The Word says “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it. 3 For there is still a vision for the appointed time; it speaks of the end, and does not lie. If it seems to tarry, wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay.” Hab 2:2-5

As the Lord leads you please consider donating towards the cost of the new tablet and microphone we that we recently purchased.  The cost of these together totaled $701.59.

A complete list will be forthcoming in the next few months. Thank you all for your generosity.

Remember to say Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, came at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
