INGITE Campaign

St. Anthony will soon 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.

Welcome to St. Anthony Parish

Week of July 3, 2022

Brothers and Sisters,

This weekend we welcome Fr. Adrian Ichaka to give a missionary appeal to St. Anthony’s. Hopefully, I’m taking a break this weekend.

We also welcome Fr. Rodrigo Mayorga Landeros as the new priest providing a spiritual and pastoral presence here at the parish. Fr. Mayorga was ordained on June 24th by Bishop Joensen. He is originally from Mexico, but moved to Osceola as a child. His assignment begins July 14th.

This month, two major decisions have come down from the Supreme Court affirming the Gospel. First is the Dobbs v. Jackson decision affirming that there is no such thing as a constitutional right to abortion. How can there be a right to eliminate one’s own child; but for the crime of “inconvenience”? As you all know, the Catholic Church – everyone from our bishops to our youngest lay faithful – have been working tirelessly to overturn Roe v. Wade. Many people don’t know that “Jane Roe” aka Norma McCorvey never had an abortion, repented of her role in the abortion movement, worked to overturn Roe, and died a faithful Catholic. While we rejoice that our nation is a step closer to recognizing the sanctity of all human life, there is still much work to be done – including passing the protect life amendment here in Iowa. Also, we will always need to support our crisis pregnancy centers, such as Innervisions on Army
Post. But, we must always support the women we care about to make healthy decisions with their lives and promote the virtue of chastity and not the vice of lust our world is so enamored of.

The Supreme Court also released their Kennedy v. Bremerton decision that allowed for freedom of prayer in public settings, including schools. As you’ve heard me say numerous times, the First Amendment to the US Constitution states freedom of religion before freedom of speech. Speech, assembly, and the press are all consequences of freedom to behave in public according to our sincerely held religious beliefs. This decision allows people to more freely be who they are as faithful instead of the forced imposition of atheistic secularism that has been the unjust status quo in our schools and encroaching everywhere in our society.

Next weekend will be my last in the parish. There will be farewell events for me after all of the masses in the lower church. Please come and say farewell!

God Bless You,
Fr. Guthrie Dolan
