Having celebrated All Saints Day when we recall those "living witnesses" of the joy and peace that living the Catholic life can bring, let us ask for the saints' intercession for those who are thinking about finding out more about the Church. If you or someone you know would like to know more about the Catholic faith, call the parish rectory at 625-6409.
Adoration in Holy Cross Chapel is open to all every Thursday from 8:30AM to 7:00PM. Adorers are needed for the following times: 8:30AM, 9:30AM, 2:30PM and 3:30PM. Please prayerfully consider spending one holy hour a week in Jesus' Eucharistic Presence so that He is never alone.
It is the most basic desire within the human heart to search for lasting peace and happiness. In response to this desire Jesus says: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matt 11:28-30). If we turn to Jesus without hesitations or reservations he will gives us that “peace that surpasses all understanding” (Phil 4:7), the peace we desire.
St. Anthony of Padua Parish, where the French tradition will always be part of the fabric of our community, is wholly committed to bringing Christ to whoever seeks him. This happens primarily in the sacraments, but also in fellowship, in Scripture studies, and other group meetings. Join us as we throw open the doors to Christ and allow him to “give us rest.”
Very Rev. Fr. Richard Dion, V.F., Pastor
