Hello Everyone!

Fr. John Monbourquette, in his bestselling book How to Forgive, writes: “If you want to be happy for a moment, then seek r

evenge. If you want to be happy for a lifetime, then grant forgiveness”. Family background, community environment, geographical location custom, nationality, culture and trends, beliefs and religious orientations, etc. etc. are various factors of who we are now. But we can’t deny the fact that everyone needs to forgive and to be forgiven because as we were reminded by our Lord last Sunday” If your brother sins against you…” do this and do that. The parable of the unforgiving servant is one of the most clear messages that we are loved by God the Father through our Lord Jesus Christ. This is an invitation for all of us to ponder the value of the sacrament of Confession. What is this sacrament for you brother/sister? What blocks you in going to confession? How much you know of real message and meaning about confession? We need to clean our house, our surroundings, our car, our Fridge and how many times we do that? How about our soul, how many times we try to clean it with the sacrament of Confession? To some extent, one of the effects of not valuing the sacrament of Reconciliation is the inability to value the sacrament of Baptism because to have babies baptized means parents must guide them in the path of life-faith journey. And to say: “I leave that thing of baptism when my child reaches the age of reason” is saying: I don't take responsibility of the growth of his/ her life. Why? Because the point is missed. Life is a gift from God. Church goers are the voice of God to non-Church goers. Church as family of God and Church as House of prayer of the family of God.  God bless us all. 


Fr. Joel




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

Sacred Silent Prayer


On Sundays, after we sing together the Glory to God in the highest, the priest says: “Let us pray”, and then is silent for a time. No, he is not lost and looking for his place in the Roman Missal, the large prayer book that the altar server carries for him. He is spending a few moments in silent prayer, and he has invited us to do the same. We call to mind our needs, the needs of the family and our special intentions. Then the priest says a general prayer to gather up all this silent prayer and then we say our “Amen” which is the Hebrew word for “So be it”.



On Wednesday, Sept. 20th we had 24 students attend class and the First Novena Mass for St. Michael. This is a great start for our Faith Formation. Thank you Fr. Francis for the homily geared toward the children.  There is still time to register for classes. Come next Wednesday at 5:30 and sign up.  I would like to thank the following catechists for volunteering this year: 

    Lois Maczuzak Patty Fuller     Rose James

Vicky Minch Myrtle Mahkimetas

Attention high school students through young adults who are interested in confirmation. We are considering holding classes on Tuesday evenings. Please contact the office or stop by next Wednesday, Sept. 27th at 5:30 to register.



On October 29th, a Mass for those who are dealing with alcohol and other drug abuse issues will be said.  The Mass is being offered for friends and family members who are grieving the loss of someone to this deadly disease.  Also being remembered and prayed for are those individuals in the throes of addiction.  Drug addiction and alcoholism are destroying this community and are severely impacting the lives of innocent people, especially the children.  St. Anthony’s wants to do its part in combatting this plague and knows how powerful prayer is to impart healing and change.  Coffee and donuts will be served in the community center after Mass. Please join us and help to spread the word.


We are asking for help to keep the church tidy and clean.  Teams of 2 or 3 people are needed for 20 minutes each week for light cleaning chores.  This cleaning can take place right before Mass on Sunday or on a Saturday, whenever it is most convenient for the team.  There will be a signup sheet in the back of church.  Please bring your questions to any member of the worship committee.  Thank you


Our next fundraiser will be Thursday, October 5, starting at 7:00am.  We will be featuring a delicious meal of homemade, secret recipe BBQ beef sandwich, homemade baked beans and potato salad.  If you can help and donate some potato salad, please let Jacci know. We are also looking for monetary donations for the beef and buns.  Thank you


October in the month of the Rosary.  St. Anthony’s will celebrate this occasion by praying the Rosary in Neopit Park on Saturday, October 14th and 21st.   This public prayer event will begin at 6:00pm.  Participants will be able to enjoy cider and donuts afterwards.  The Rosary will be offered up on behalf of the community for its wellbeing.

I Paul Dutkiewicz & Donna Marie Kaquatosh

Canon Law 1057 states: the conference of bishops is to issue norms concerning the examination of the parties, and the marriage banns or other appropriate means for carrying out the necessary inquiries which are to precede marriage. The pastor can proceed to assist a marriage after such norms have been diligently observed. Since marriage is not a private possession of the two parties but a matter of public interest, both ecclesial and secular societies have traditionally enacted legislation concerning basic requirements for marriage, aimed at assuring they will not enter into a relationship detrimental to themselves, possible children, or the community.
