Celebrate the Easter season with St. Anthony! We have our Easter center up and ready for you to use to dig into the various celebrations and observances throughout the entire Easter season-not just Easter Sunday. This week features St. George!

A hardy crew of volunteers from St. Anthony and Sacred Heart worked together on April 10 to clean up the yards of four St. Anthony parishioners. Despite the off and on rain and cold temperatures, the crew enjoyed working together and getting to meet new people. Thanks to the following volunteers: Barb Anderson, Deb Scott, Betsy Schneider, Dwight Sommar, Kevin Priest, Berkeley Priest, Warner Priest, Stella Priest, Madden Priest, Pete Eyheralde, Sheryl Heffner, Pat Finan, Laura Hollinrake, Rod Knutson, Mary Knutson, and J’Lyn Knutson.  

Volunteers are needed to help paint the hall on the morning of Saturday, April 24. We’ll start at 9 a.m. Contact Laura Hollinrake at knoxvillestanthonydre@diodav.org or 641-842-5267 if you can help.

Holy Land Pilgrimage with Fr. Appel and Fr. Anstey , October 4-15, 2021

Dear Friends,

It is a joy to invite you to join us on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Since our youth we have heard the Gospel stories about the Lord Jesus walking and teaching in Jerusalem, Capernaum, and Galilee. We will be seeing those places and much more. Our visit will give us an opportunity of walking in the footsteps of Jesus, our Blessed Mother Mary, and the very first disciples. Each day we will celebrate Mass at one of the holy places and reflect on the Gospel text appropriate to the place we visit. This pilgrimage will forever change the way you read and understand the Scriptures. We hope you will be able to join us on what promises to be a grace-filled journey to the land from where it at all started.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Paul Appel and Fr. Kevin Anstey
