In our times,the saintly spirit of St. Anthony continues to work wonders in our parish as we walk together in the footsteps of Jesus, Savior and Lord of our lives.

Founded in 1906 to serve the ever growing influx of Italian immigrants to the south side of Des Moines, St. Anthony’s now comprises some 1,800 families of a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, while continuing to recognize its historic identity as an Italian parish. 

A multitude of ministries are offered here as we together attempt to build a vibrant parochial life. Our Catholic school serves as another fundamental building block of our identity. We create within its walls a Catholic culture, providing excellence in academics as well as a spirituality which helps equip our youngsters with the tools to be committed Catholic adults. 

You will find on this website information about our ministries, programs, people, events, and much more. St. Anthony parish, grounded in our Catholic tradition, but ever open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit to build for a more glorious future, welcomes you.

God’s Blessing to you. 

Monsignor Frank E. Chiodo


My Dear Parish Family, 

October marks the 100th year since the last appearance of Mary to the children in Fatima, Portugal.  The message of Our Lady is as relevant today as it was a century ago: pray for peace, pray the Rosary for the conversion of hearts and the salvation of souls, and make reparation for the offenses against God and the Blessed Mother through acts of penance. 

Here is a fitting prayer to Our Lady.  Say the Rosary daily and then offer this prayer.  The message comes not from me, but from the Mother of God herself.

Pray with me:
