Join Us For A Parish Mission

Jesus is our Savior and our God, but do we really know Him as we should? This Lent, join us for a parish mission in which we’ll take a fresh look at Jesus– who He is, what He taught, and what He did for our salvation. We’ll watch and discuss the DVD series, Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life. Filmed in the Holy Land, the series allows us to see where the most significant events in Jesus’ life took place and better understand the world–its history, politics, cultures, and land–in which Jesus lived and taught.

Join us Sunday, March 1st through Thursday, March 5th. You don’t need to attend all five nights. Each night focuses on different aspects of Jesus’ life, so join us when you can! We’ll start with supper at from 5:30 to 6 p.m. and the program will run from 6 to 8 p.m. This program is aimed towards older youth and adults. Children are welcomed to attend with their parents.

There is no cost to attend, but we do request you RSVP for supper by contacting Laura Hollinrake by email or phone. Any weather cancellations will be posted on KNIAKRLS.com.

Civilize It in 2020 Election Season

What does it mean to love our neighbors in the midst of such a divisive climate? Catholics are called to bring the best of ourselves and our faith to the public square—and yet today, many shy away from such involvement because our national and local conversations are filled with anger and harsh language, often directed at people themselves. As Catholics, we must model a better way. We invite you to model love for neighbor by pledging to Civilize It and committing to civility, clarity, and compassion this election year. Civilize It: Dignity Beyond the Debate is a non-partisan call to focus on the dignity of all people, even those with whom we disagree, and to put faith in action. Make room in your heart for those with whom you disagree and pledge dignity beyond the debate today at CivilizeIt.org!

Jim Brees Retirement Gathering

After nearly four decades of dedicated service to St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, our building maintenance and grounds supervisor, Jim Brees, has retired. Please join us after Mass on Sunday, January 26th for a reception in honor of an amazing man who has touched the lives of so many. All are welcome!

Bingo

Our annual parish Bingo Fun Night is postponed due to the weather.

The event will now be held Friday, February 21st at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is free to join in the fun for all ages! Bring snacks to share and gently used or new prizes to donate to the cache. Don’t worry if you can’t be there right at 6:30-drop in when you can. It’s always a rollicking good time for all ages! Bring your friends!
