SUNDAY: 8:00AM (French)
SATURDAYS AT 2:30PM
In celebrating Our Lady's final journey to God in her glorious Assumption, let us ask her motherly intercession to draw souls to the Sacred Heart of her Son. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a journey too - of conversion to God and what He intends for us. RCIA is the process by which persons who were never baptized, or were baptized in another Christian tradition, become members of the Catholic Church, a people on a pilgrimage to our Heavenly Father. Please contact the rectory office at 625-6409 for more information.
Adoration in Holy Cross Chapel is open to all every Thursday from 8:30AM to 7:00PM.
To register to spend a Holy Hour with our Lord (every week) as an Adorer, please do one of the following:
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
