Welcome to St. Anthony Parish

Sunday, July 12th, 2020                          


We are making progress on theNational Historic Registry. More work to
be done, but things are looking positive.  This is a singular honor and places our
Parish Church on the list of Historic Sites in our Country. Stay tuned.

Ministry meetings can reconvene again at the church.  Check with the parish office for details.

Weekend Mass attendance stayed about the same this last weekend. Thanks for attending to the recommended pandemic guidelines, such as social distancing and masks.

We are now sending out a Newsletter in the mail to all parishioners and if you did not receive one this last month, please contact Kim Lehman to make sure you are on the list (text or call 515.202.2517). We are also asking that you let us know if you would like the Newsletter to be in Spanish. Please see the return form at the bottom of the Newsletter that asks which language you would like it in and return to the office.

God Bless. Stay safe.
Monsignor Frank E. Chiodo
