Mass of Consulation
There will be a Mass of Consolation on Thursday, November 17th at 7:30 p.m. in the McKean Church.
This Mass is for anyone who has experienced any kind of loss this past year, the death of a family member, the loss of a job, the loss of a relationship or any other kind of loss. Let us pray together that we might receive God's healing peace.
During the Mass we will read the names of those people who have died this past year, parishioners and the names of family members who died in other places. In addition, all those present will have the opportunity to light a vigil candle to lift up your special personal prayer, need or request for the consolation you seek. Please come, so that we can pray together and share in the light, peace and hope of the Lord.
Catholics Care. Catholics Vote.
"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern." - Pope Francis, 9/16/13
The USCCB has released a video that the Saint Anthony Social Concerns committee would like to share with you. The statement lifts up our dual heritage as both faithful Catholics and American citizens with rights and duties as participants in the civil order. This is a 30 minute video on forming ones conscience for faithful citizenship. http://bcove.me/cdya02wu We encourage you to take a moment to have a look.

This year our theme is Charlie Brown.
The event takes place on Sunday, Oct. 30th following the 5:30pm Mass. If you have never attended, a Trunk or Treat is an event where trick-or-treating is done from the trunks of parked cars. Parishioners are encouraged to decorate their vehicle trunk and hand out candy. Younger parishioners and community members can then come and trick or treat, play games, and have some Halloween fun in a safe place. We will also have food for sale - Taco Dinners will be $8.
