Our Holy Week and Easter community celebrations at St. Anthony, normally so intense and full of joy, have been suspended to reduce the possibility of transmitting the virus among the faithful, but our parish, as it continues to weather this storm, will provide the following devotional opportunities to all our parishioners and friends.
Palm Sunday Weekend - Blessed Palm branches will be available at church from 3-5PM on Saturday, April 4 and from 6AM-6PM on Palm Sunday, April 5. Please take only what you and your family need so as many people as possible can receive their palm. Also, please help us keep our church open by making a contribution, either with your unused collection envelopes from past weeks or by donation in the specially provided Easter envelope.
Holy Thursday – Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 5-8PM on April 9.
Good Friday – The church will remain open for parishioner visits from 10AM – 6PM.
Easter Weekend – Individual bottles of blessed Holy Water will be available at church following the same schedule as Palm Sunday weekend.
PLEASE BE GENEROUS IN YOUR SUPPORT FOR ST. ANTHONY NOW MORE THAN EVER. We have no appreciable income during these stressful weeks other than your contributions. We trust in the goodness of the Risen Lord that soon our parish and the world will once again be at peace.
By orders of Archbishop Blair, scheduled times of confession for the community (Mondays & Saturdays) have been temporarily suspended. However, Rev. Francis Snell is available anytime for confession by appointment.
