Join us for some or all of our Lenten happenings at St. Anthony to grow in faith and in community this season.

St. Anthony will have a communal penance service Sunday, March 13th at 4 p.m. Please plan to join us and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation this Lenten season.

“The Temptations” is our youth ministry focus this Sunday, March 6! We’ll have fun learning games to discover ways to deal with temptation. It’s for youth in middle school and high school from 7 to 8:15 p.m. in the church gathering space.

We’ll continue exploring the sacraments of healing on Sunday, March 20, with an all-ages faith formation gathering called “Signs of Healing and Hope!” We’ll discover the grace God gives ill and dying people in the Anointing of the Sick. If you think this sacrament is just the “last rites” and only for those dying, think again… and come learn more. It’s from 9 to 10:15 a.m. on March 20th.

As we begin our Lenten journey, reflect on how your prayers, fasting and almsgiving can guide you. As Pope Francis explains, these are “elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity.” How can practicing the Lenten pillars transform your life and the lives of our sisters and brothers around the world? Visit to learn more. Bowls are available to take and fill in the parish entryway.
