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. 

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

‘ On the Way !Andale!’ Campaign ‘Giving Tuesday’ Contest!

 

We will be blessed with Bishop Michael Boullete celebrating

             the 11:30 Mass on Sunday, February 9th.  

A Breakfast hosted by the Archdiocese will be served in

the Parish Office Building immediately after the Mass.

Four percent of the parish families made a gift for the Giving Tuesday Contest    and the funds raised will help with the parish's projects of campus renovations.

Let us rejoice and be glad in our achievements in the first seventeen months of  the campaign. Let’s channel our love for the Lord and our church in 2020         by thanking God for our 2019 blessings and another year of life.

 

If your New Year's Resolution is to give more to your Church, there is no better way to start than your gift to this campaign. Pick up an envelope at the church entrance tables and place it in the collection basket or bring to the office or office drop slot. Never too late to make a one-time gift, monthly gift or a pledge in 2020!

A huge 'Thank you' for your commitment towards our parish campaign.





Merciful and Gracious is the Lord, slow to anger,  abounding in Mercy.                 -Psalm 103:8
