St. Anthony's Parish - Elmendorf, TX

 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.


Advent is a time of waiting, longing and preparing.

 It is a time to pray, "Come, Lord Jesus."

We look forward to celebrating the first coming of Jesus at Christmas.  We look forward with hope to the second coming of Jesus in all His glory.  We seek out Jesus here and now in the the celebration of the Holy Eucharist in Mass.  We seek out Jesus in the ordinary events in our lives and in the people we meet.  Let us rejoice and be glad and prepare for the anniversary of the Jesus' birth on Chrismas, the Navity of our Lord.
