The Altar and Rosary Society welcomes all women of our parish 18 years and older to join our organization. (Women younger than 18 should inquire about the Altar and Rosary Youth Group.) In addition to being the oldest St. Anthony organization, formed in 1958, we are one of the most active and rapidly growing. Our objectives include:

1.    Cultivate and promote greater devotion to Our Blessed Lord through the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary 
2.    Furnish the adornment of the Altar and Sanctuary 
3.    Promote activities within our parish.
4.    Support needs of our community as Charitable Stewards of Jesus Christ.

In addition, here is a partial list of our ongoing activities:

1.    Parish wide bake sale for our annual Fall Festival. 
2.    Bake and decorate cookies for the St. Vincent de Paul Christmas baskets.
3.    Supply homemade desserts for the annual Knights of Columbus Lenten Fish Fries.
4.    Host receptions and events for our Parish Religious and members as requested.
5.    All available members will participate in the Rosary offered at the funeral home upon the death of a member as requested by their family.
6.    Offer a Mass monthly for all living and deceased members of the Altar and Rosary Society. This is held on the first Sunday of each month, beginning with the Rosary at 8:00 PM
