St. Anthony's Parish - Elmendorf, TX

  A Parish of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio

As a diverse parish with two churches we embrace the love of our Lord and his Blessed Mother Mary.  We give all praise, all glory and honor to the beloved Son of God, Jesus Christ, in all that we do for our parish community and our families.

"Christ acts like a loving mother. To induce us to follow Him, He gives us Himself as an example and promises us a reward in His kingdom."
- Saint Anthony de Padua

The Year of Mercy is an invitation—an invitation to love, kindness,   and unbounded generosity. Pope Francis is offering you the opportunity to encounter the incredible mercy of God. Encountering mercy means encountering God. It can transform your life, your relationships, your work, and your ability to embrace and experience all of life.

Our Deanery Events invite all parishioners to attend at least one event as a celebration of this Holy Year Of Mercy as outlined by Pope Francis.  The church in Panna Maria has been dedicated as the open door, a passage to Mercy.  Plan your family pilgrimage to Panna Maria, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

  • Sunday, May 29, 2016 at 4:00pm -A day for ACTS, Cursillo members and other prayer groups and movements in the deanery.  Sponsored by The Floresville Deanery ACTS Core.
  • Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 4:00pm- Closing Ceremony.
