Ministry Booklet - This updated booklet gives a complete overview of all of our Ministries at St. Anthony’s

Ministries at St. Anthony of Padua - Do we have your ministry?

Are you looking to find your Ministry? Is God calling you to serve? He does have a plan for you… Our purpose is to bring you closer to Christ and the Catholic Church. We have over 35 Ministries to choose from here at St. Anthony’s Church. If you would like to be a volunteer or would like to join one of these ministries, please go through this booklet and find the one that is right for you. We welcome you to be part of our Church Community and share your stewardship. If you have any questions please contact: Sr. Rosa Maria Franco, FHIC, in the Office of Ministries at: 439-0124, ext. 112. Our mission is to serve you and your family by offering programs and ministries that meets your spiritual needs. A passage in the New Testament helps keep in mind why members of a Catholic parish came together in the name of Jesus. “Instruction in the faith of the Apostles, the building up of a living community, the Eucharist and the other sacraments, and the life of prayer,” (Acts 2:42) These are essential factors of the life of every parish.
