What's Happening in the Parish?!

Welcome to St. Anthony Parish

Week of Sunday, October 25, 2020

Dear Parishioners,

The Food Sale last weekend was a great success and I want to thank all of you who helped to put it together and to all of you who bought food. This is a wonderful project. Fr. Reynaldo also wants to say thank you... “I want to thank EVERYONE for your support of the tamales Food Sale that benefited the San Oscar A. Romero Major Seminary in El Salvador. Our help will benefit many generations of seminarians and future priests, not only in Central America, but also in many other countries, as is my case. Bishop Elías Samuel Bolaños from the diocese of Zacatecoluca where I came from sent a letter of gratitude for all the work and dedication that St. Anthony carries out each year to make possible this activity-- and he sends us his blessing--Thank you.”

I also want to encourage you to consider leading the daily Rosary. In the bulletin and enews is information about how you can be involved in this important project.
Praying the Rosary in this day and age is what we must all consider doing and joining others in praying the Rosary is even more powerful. I hope you will prayerfully consider taking a day each month.

This is the last weekend to sign up to receive a St. Vincent de Paul food basket so if you know of someone who is in need, please let them know. Giving to this project is giving to our Lord and if you would like to help, again, see the bulletin for more information.

Finally, thank you to all who have continued to give in your tithes. During these challenging times, it is even more important to come to church, pray and participate in giving to the Church.
Monsignor Frank E. Chiodo

Please place your contributions in the envelopes provided at the entrance of the church which are labeled TURKEY FUND and then place the envelope in the basket for Sunday Offering or please take your contribution to the business office. St Vincent de Paul is very thankful for your donations and God Bless.
