This Week at St. Anthony Parish

JUNE 26, 2022  I  Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

And another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home.” To him Jesus said, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God.” (Lk. 9: 61-62)

Read today's gospel.

Fr. Arthur Ssembajja to Begin Serving Tues.

St. Anthony community! Our new Parish Administrator, Father Arthur Ssembajja, is set to begin serving our parish this Tuesday, June 28! We are incredibly excited to have Father Arthur, and can't wait for you to meet him. Please keep him in prayer as he gets settled here at St. Anthony!

Read a bit about Fr. Arthur

Thank You Fr. Tyrell!

Fr. Arthur's arrival also sadly signals the conclusion of Fr. Tyrell Alles's time with us. We have to say, we are very sad to see Fr. Tyrell go! The staff here at St. A has really gotten to love Fr. Tyrell, and we wish him the best as he moves forward to shepherd St. Louis Besancon in New Haven, Indiana. Thank you very much for serving us

over the last 6 weeks Fr. Tyrell, we were blessed to have you! Be sure to thank Fr. Tyrell in person this weekend!

In Case You Missed It!

Amazing Footage of the Eucharistic Procession

Did you attend the Eucharistic Procession in Warsaw last weekend? Over 5000 people from all around the diocese gathered to walk with Jesus alive in the Eucharist from Sacred Heart Parish to Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish. Fr. Jay Horning was able to capture footage and photos from a drone for all to see, and what he captured is so cool!

Click the photo above to view the moving footage from the procession. May we keep the momentum of the National Eucharistic Revival in our prayers as begin this Diocesan Year!

“A generous person will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.” - Proverbs 22:9.

Loving & Welcoming Our Neighbor

Fellow parishioners, do you still have your guide from the Parish Mission? We hope so! 

In the "Welcoming" section of the Parish Mission Guide, on page 9, you'll find a Prayer to Love Your Neighbor from our patron Saint Anthony de Padua himself.

Why not open up your guide and take these words of Saint Anthony to prayer, pondering them in your heart? 

May this prayer help foster an even greater culture of welcoming here at St. Anthony and at every parish. May those looking for a home, or help, or both, know that St. Anthony is a place to turn!

Theology on Tap Summer Series

Begins July 19

God’s providence is always at work. There are no coincidences with Him, and no place is too far to be reached by His grace and mercy. While there may be some places where the world wouldn’t expect Him to show up, He can move and speak in all times and places.

Even in grief. Even in transition. Even in your search for belonging or desire to live a good life.

Come hear stories of how people in our community have found God in unlikely places.

ALL young adults are welcome, Catholic or not!
