Thanksgiving Dinner Cancelled

St. Anthony's Community is cancelling our Thanksgiving dinner originally scheduled for November 18 at 3:00 p.m. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause. We are looking forward to having our event next year for Thanksgiving 2018.

We invite anyone interested in learning about the Catholic Church, or an adult Catholic who has not been confirmed, to attend.

Children's Adoration

Children's Adoration will be on the third Sunday of the month after the 8:30 a.m. mass. Children in religious education will participate with their classes at 9:40 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 10:20 a.m. with their catechists guiding the children as they sing, pray petition prayers, and an Act of Faith, Hope, and Charity, and spend some quiet time in the presence of Jesus. Each twenty-minute segment will conclude with Benediction, the Divine Praises, and a closing hymn. Parishioners are welcome to stay and pray with us.
