What's Happening in the Parish?!

Welcome to St. Anthony Parish

Sunday, Agust 2, 2020

Dear Parishioners,

Who of us at times does not suffer from worrying? We are beginning to discover the
intricate relationship between emotional stress and physical illness.
Jesus reminds us of the power of prayer— the medicine that counts: “Come by
yourselves to an out-of-the-way place and rest a little.”

Sometimes people tell me they cannot find privacy for prayer. We MUST search for that prayer time and place. We thirst for the strength that comes only from our prayers—our conversation and communion with the Lord.Be creative and search for a prayer place to spend some precious moments each day with the Lord. I guarantee you will find yourself coping better with worries, strengthened to face the trials of
life, and encouraged to keep on trying rather than escaping.

Worrying can have a strangle hold on your life. There are two golden days about which I try never to worry—yesterday and tomorrow. Those days belong to God; therefore; that leaves me only today. And with God’s help, this day will be a blessing.
Anyone can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when we add the burden of those two awful eternities (yesterday and tomorrow) that we break down. Those are God’s days. Leave them with Him. I will journey just one day at a time and pray, realizing that He is with me—-now— to heal me of the wounds of the past, and strengthen me for the days ahead.

I want to announce the appointment of Anne McFall as parish trus tee. Anne is taking Julie Konkols’ place. We thank Julie for her faithful service as trustee and we look forward to Anne joining Dave Miller (currently trustee) in this important duty.

God bless
Monsignor Frank E. Chiodo
