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

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.       


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.
