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.



First Holy Communion

Our Parish will celebrate First Holy Communion on September 27 at the 12 Noon Mass. We ask you to keep all our CCD children in your prayers especially our children who will receive First Holy Communion.

America Needs Fatima Rally


Saturday, October 10 at Noon

On this date, an estimated one million Catholics will attend rallies and pray for the conversion of America in a public place in honor of the 103 rd anniversary of the Marian Apparitions at Fatima, Portugal in 1917. By saying a public rosary on October 10th your soul will grow in faith, hope and charity. The sun danced at Fatima, Portugal for the world to know the truth and urgency of our Lady’s
message. “Pray the Rosary for world peace.”

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.
