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.



“Take courage, it is I.

               Do not be afraid.”

                                     Jesus Christ

As we continue in Phase 3 of directives don’t forget to spread the word that the church  is open once again.  All are expected to follow guidelines. 

All Physical Masses, Confessions, Baptisms, Funerals etc. have limited capacity of 100.  Seating is assigned, please wear a mask and follow our set procedures.

If you prefer you Can Still Attend Mass On-Line, FB or TV – EWTN.  Remember to say Spiritual Communion.

This is based on guidelines from the Archdiocese on how Churches will reopen.  

Phase 1: Churches will first be opened for personal prayer only. Individuals and families can come to church for quiet prayer, and the Sacrament of Reconciliation may be celebrated if social distancing can be maintained and masks are worn.

Phase 2:  Following Phase 1, churches will be permitted to celebrate public weekday Masses and funerals with very specific restrictions, such as the strict practice of social distancing, use of masks and limited number of people present.

Phase 3. Following Phase  2, churches will be permitted to celebrate Sunday Mass publicly with the obligatory practice of social distancing, use of masks and limited number of people present. All other sacraments will resume according to the directives during   Phase 3.

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.

Fill us with your joy and love so that we share them with our

We are happy you are here…. and want you to stay. We would like to share our faith with you. If you are alienated or upset, we welcome you lovingly. If you are in need of forgiveness, Jesus forgives you completely – with unconditional love. If you have been hurt by the Church, we are truly sorry. If you are angry, Jesus offers you peace. If life has become burdensome, we are here to support you. Join us each week so we can worship God together
