We are a Christian community called together to grow in faith and to celebrate God’s love for us in the Mass and Sacraments of the Catholic Church.  Through the gospel message and our common worship we are challenged to give Christian witness by our lives and service to others. 


St Anthony Church is a community of people where a 

sense of belonging welcomes one and all;

where tradition and culture offer deeper

faith,hope and love;

Where religious education becomes pathway to our identity.

            St. Anthony Church is a community of people

Where you belong forever

 Our Catholic community of St. Michael’s, St. Francis’, St. Anthony’s and St. Mary’s Parish,

God be always with us;

The Sacrament of Baptism will be the theme for the articles in the August issues of our bulletin; may it serve as reminders of our Catholic beliefs and practice, and may it also promote the reception of the Sacrament itself, considering it as one very essential matter of our faith.

Generally, Baptism can be identified as one of the Sacrament of Initiation (which includes, Confirmation and Eucharist). According to Fr. Alfred McBride in his book Teen Catechism; These Sacraments of Initiation “moves us towards the fullest incorporation into the Body of Christ”. Moreover, the Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us that by the Sacrament of Baptism:

  1. We become members of the Church, It is a ‘welcoming’ or incorporation into the Christian community of believers, followers and disciples.
  2. A new identity was given to us, we are now Christians where in we receive the birth into the new life in Christ. We become sons and daughters (children) of God.
  3. It marks us an indelible character that makes us holy and opens us to salvation and life eternal with God.

These are just some of the Theological considerations about Baptism which should be the most important ones… I want to invite you to come into reflection once again about our responsibility of being baptized person, what baptism entails of us. 

At the succeeding articles, some other essential elements about Baptism will continue to remind us more about the importance of the Sacrament.


Fr. Francis


The Mass: A slice at a Time - The Liturgical Year


 Entering: You’ve been busy gathering everyone together, you’ve hopped into the car, and you’re heading to Church. Your mind maybe a million miles away from God, from prayer. But the celebration of the Mass is already beginning. When you arrive at Church, you see neighbors, friends, and acquaintances. You nod recognition, exchange a couple of friendly words. This is the Body of Christ gathering!


As you enter the Church, you dip your hand into the holy water font, touch the water, and sign yourself with the blessed water, helping young children in the family to the same. And as you walk into the Church, you see people bowing or genuflecting before entering the pew. And once in the pew you spend a minute or two settling in, getting the family members around you organized, and getting ready for the beginning of the celebration.




The Feast of St. Michael the Archangel, our Parish Patron on September 29th is fast approaching. We are starting our preparation for this celebration. We will again have our Novena Masses starting September 20th through September 28th at 6 pm (except Saturday and Sunday).  In connection with this, we will be taking special intentions for these Masses. The money collected will be our starting fund for next years’ celebration.  If you wish to have a Mass said for a special intention, please go to the Parish Office and sign up for this.  On the Feast of St. Michael, September 29th, Mass will be at 8 am. There will be a potluck breakfast after Mass to Celebrate the Feast of St. Michael.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation at St. Anthony

A part of the renovation for the church was converting the cry room to a reconciliation room.  The remaining work to be done is the addition of new curtains for the window.  Please talk to Fr. Joel or Fr. Francis about receiving this gift.

Barb Warrington, one of our dear parishioners, wanted to share this prayer with everyone:

The Act of Contrition

Oh my God, I am heartily sorry 

For having offended Thee

I detest all my sins because of Thy just punishments,

But most of all because they have offended Thee,

My God who art all good and deserving of my love.

I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace,

To sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.
