Welcome to St. Anthony Parish

Week of April 4, 2021
My Dear Family of St. Anthony Parish,

The memories of Easter celebrations are vivid as I recall the Solemn liturgies of my childhood when I served as an altar boy at this altar. It was here in our church where the call of the Lord was heard as I knelt at the altar. The Holy Week liturgies with Msgr. Peter Schmitz, ,Fr. Stessman and Fr. Gubbels in my youth drew me to the altar with a desire to be a priest. And little did I realize that I would be standing in Msgr. Schmitz’s shoes as pastor of this beloved parish. What an honor for me!

Here during these days of Easter we renew our love for the Lord, especially in and through the Sacred Liturgy. With the partitions being removed from our pews, we are now able to accommodate more of our parishioners for the celebration of our Easter feast personally present in the church. There is nothing as powerful and privileged
than to be here in person---face to face---heart to heart with the Lord in the Mass, surrounded by our parish family rejoicing together in the Risen Lord who wants to lift us up out of our worries, fears, anxieties, and discouragement. Here He touches us where we hurt—and heals us in the Sacrament of the Altar.

Last Easter we celebrated the Easter mysteries with an empty church. How wonderful to have us together again in God’s special house---St. Anthony’s church. May the joy of the Risen Savior fill our hearts, and our homes. Amen.

Happy Easter from Fr. Dolan, Fr Reynaldo, our Deacons, and the parish and school staff.

Monsignor Frank E. Chiodo
