                   AUGUST 13TH, 19th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME 




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

ANNOINTING OF THE SICK: Individual arrangements can be made through the Parish Office

MARRIAGE:  Make arrangements with the pastor six months prior to desired date.


CONFIRMATION:   Next class 2018.




Here are the other very important theological points about the Sacrament of Baptism:

The Sacrament of Baptism washes away the Original Sin by which we inherit from our first parents; Adam and Eve. It doesn’t mean that we will be immune with sin, but it challenges us to avoid it by remaining pure, that is why we are called for a worthy way of life as baptized Christian.

The motivation to remain untarnished is that by baptism; it makes us temples of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit sanctifies us as it dwells in us. Now, it will depend on us if we choose to commit sin of our own, it will not however take away the Character or the spiritual Mark of the Sacrament, but it will weaken our built relationship with God, that is why Jesus established the other Sacraments (specifically the Sacraments of Initiation; Confirmation and Eucharist) so that we can have other ways to live up with the life expected from us by the Lord.

We reflect then;

Having been washed of our “stain” we practically don’t want to get “dirty” again… this is what it means by the challenge in our reception of the Sacrament of Baptism. Having been “fortified” by holiness, we do our best not to “crumble” by the continued lure of temptation. 

Fr. Francis, MF

Youth Talk 

With our first Youth Assembly (youth night)  completed last July 26, we express our appreciation to everyone who helped in its preparation, to the parents/guardians who sent their children to the gathering and of course to the youth who came for the event. We continue to create more possible ways to gather the youth again, (and maybe sometime together with you dear parents), and try to foster more fun-filled and spiritual activities to open themselves in the service of the Church by the grace of God. Our Youth Ministry’s journey now begins!


F. Francis and F. Joel, MF




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 Mass: A slice at a time: 


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


 For Catholics, attending Mass on Sunday or Saturday evening vigil Mass is not an optional. It is an obligation. The author of the Letter to the Hebrews addressed this in Hebrews 10:25 “We should not stay away from our assembly, as is the custom of some, but encourage one another.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church in paragraph 2181 explains why. “The Sunday Eucharist is the foundation and confirmation of all Christian practice.” As Catholics, we believe that the Mass is the highest form of prayer and worship.

The faithful should know that deliberately missing Mass without a serious reason is a mortal sin. This is explained in the Catechism, paragraph 2181. ‘For this reason the faithful are obliged to participate in the Eucharist on days of obligation, Aug.15, Assumption is one of those days. Unless excused for a serious reason (Ex: illness, the care of infants) or dispensed by their pastor. Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit a grave sin.”

In going to Mass on Sunday, we follow the Third Commandment to keep holy the Sabbath.

Fr. Joel

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.
