Welcome to St. Anthony Parish

Week of May 22, 2022

Dear Friends,

We’re getting a lot of requests for information about Msgr. Chiodo’s condition. Msgr. Chiodo is doing fairly well, considering. His condition has been diagnosed and a treatment plan has been presented, which will soon lead to discharge from the hospital and likely admission to a skilled care facility. As you can imagine, Msgr. Chiodo is anxious and scared. He really does enjoy seeing all of your cards. Again, Msgr. Chiodo has requested privacy at this time. Please respect his privacy.

The Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA) seems to have stagnated at 73% of goal - meaning we need about $40,000 to fulfill our contribution. Money in this fund helps to pay for priest medical expenses, such as what Msgr. Chiodo is facing and will continue to face into retirement, as well as supplement our retired priests to be able to afford housing. Please contribute to the ADA, and make Fr. Reising’s life easier when he gets here.

Those of you who have stopped by the parish office recently may have noticed a few changes. We’re moving offices around, putting in new carpet, and painting the walls (not in that order!). We will also be doing some work in the rectory to refreshen the space for the priests coming to live here in July. Please pardon service interruptions recently, as computers and phones were getting moved around.

In the readings this weekend, the Church has us begin reflecting on the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Let us pray for a greater receptivity of the Holy Spirit in our lives as we seek to know, love, and follow the Lord Jesus every day.

In Christ,
Fr. Dolan

Consecration to Our Lady -

Save the date, we’ll start preparation on June 13 to consecrate ourselves and our Parish on July 16 on the feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel.  

When consecrating ourselves to Our Lady, we are consecrating ourselves to Jesus through Mary. As Pope John Paul II explained, “Consecrating ourselves to Mary means accepting her help to offer ourselves and the whole of mankind to him who is holy, infinitely holy; it means accepting her help—by having recourse to her motherly heart, which beneath the cross was opened to love for every human being, for the whole world—in order to offer the world, the individual human being, mankind as a whole, and all the nations to him who is infinitely holy” (May 13, 1982)

St. Anthony Corpus Christi Procession - Sunday June 19, 2022 - 11AM Bilingual Mass at Grotto followed by Procession and luncheon in Parish Hall.

INGITE Campaign

In the spring, St. Anthony will participate in the IGNITE Campaign. The focus of the campaign will be to improve access to Catholic education, increase funds for seminarian education and priest retirement, and to invest in all our parishes. This milestone fundraising effort is the result of many months of prayer and preparation. All 80 churches in our Diocese will take part. It is designed to benefit all Catholics in Southwest Iowa. Our parish is participating this spring, and preparations are beginning this winter. We need many volunteers to assist our parish for this campaign to be successful. If you are interested in volunteering and helping, please contact Mark Paris in the parish office for additional details.
