 A Parish of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio


Welcome to St. Anthony's Parish Website! You can now find all St. Anthony and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Events on our Calendar and get information on Ministries, Pastoral Council and Religious Education.


'Season of Welcome'

We welcome into our parish community new members and visitors to St. Anthony's Church and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Mission Church.  

     As identified in the archdiocese’s Mutually Shared Vision, the first priority is the New Evangelization, going out and bringing people back to faith, back to life in Christ, back to the church. This is the meaning of the 'Season of Welcome'.  The new evangelization outreach effort is aiming to let people know that all are welcome in the Catholic Church.  

Parish Registration forms and Update forms are available at the church entrance.  You may mail the form into the parish office or place in the collection basket or bring it by the office.




You are cordially invited to celebrate the Retirement of 


Deacon John K. Miller (Jack)


on his Diaconate Anniversary of 22 years.



Celebration begins with Holy Mass at 11:30 a.m., St. Anthony's Church,

followed by a reception in the parish hall.


Please RSVP by November 2nd via the Sign Up Log at the church    entrance of St. Anthony’s Church & Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
