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.

The Year of Mercy Closing Ceremony will be held at Panna Maria on

Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.

                      CAPITAL CAMPAIGN UPDATE

We sincerely thank everyone who has given so generouslyto our Parish Capital Campaign.  With your generosity our parish has completed Phase I (new Rectory) and Phase II (Hall renovation) without securing a loan.  

 

Phase III (Parish Office Renovation) is the next capital project that will be funded by the Capital Campaign Funds however, the we still need additional pledges of $100,674.38 in order to reach our Capital Campaign Goal of $350,000.00 so we can move forward with Phase III. 

 

The current committed pledges yet to be paid equal to $7,528.09 so the additional pledges will provide the funds required to complete Phase III.

There are several ways to participate!

       1. A Pledged Donation to be paid monthly, quarterly or at one time.

2. If you have completed your pledge commitment please consider a new Pledge or increasing your Pledge amount if your pledge is yet to complete. 

3. Purchase a “Tree of Life” Leaf or Stone or Dove (Click on clipart to view). 

4.  Purchase a beautiful Memorial Wall Plaque in memory of a loved one (detail on the back of page).
