A Holy Year of Mercy

Pope Francis announced a jubilee year, a very special event in the Catholic Church, called the Holy Year of Mercy. A jubilee year is called by the church to receive a blessing and pardon from God; this jubilee year begins on December 8, 2015 and will close on November 20, 2016, the feast of Christ the King. The Holy Year of Mercy celebrates being a witness of mercy and invites us all to follow the example of God as merciful, forgiving
and loving followers. 

What is Mercy? Mercy is acts of love by which we care for the bodily and spiritual needs of others. Being merciful frequently includes forgiveness of others, just as God the Father demonstrates forgiveness of our sins through love. Please put the begin date on your calendar now. You will be hearing more about this as the time approaches. Perhaps you might have some ideas on how to celebrate this special year!

Golf TournamentThe Saint Anthony Parish
“Smitty Smithson Memorial”
Golf Tournament

On Saturday, September 26th, Saint Anthony Parish will sponsor its 25th annual golf tournament at Los Lagos Golf Course in San Jose. This year, we will again honor the memory of “Smitty” Smithson, the long-time organizer and participant in the annual event.

This tournament is open to all golfers, good and “not so good” (like most of us). It’s a scramble format so everyone has a chance to win. Don’t worry if you don’t have a foursome, we can accommodate everyone. The $85.00 entry fee includes golf, the cart, “goodie bag,” tournament scoring and eligibility to win some great prizes. Additional raffle tickets and a “Cheater Package” are also available.

Immediately after golfing, plan to stay for the Barbeque Dinner. For an additional $25.00, you get a Rib/Chicken dinner which includes; salad, corn on the cob, beans, potato salad, garlic bread and refreshments (beer included). Bring your spouse, we guarantee a good time.

If you can’t make it to the event please consider making a donation, since all proceeds, after expenses, go to our parish operating fund.

Entry forms are available at the sign-up tables outside the church after Mass or in the church vestibule.
