Develop Your Relationship with God, Find Your Ministry, Find Your Joy, Serve the Lord


St. Anthony of Padua Parish believes that all men and women are worthy of love and chosen to participate in the mission of the Church. We believe all are called to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ by their actions and words, and to work toward the transformation of the world.

Our Parish is fortunate to be enriched by 33+ Ministries for persons of all ages, that fulfill Christ’s Mission. Each ministry serves others in a selfless way, meets people where they are, works with them to discern their needs, and helps them on their journey to a more personal relationship with God.
