IMPORTANT COVID NOTICE
Dear St. Anthony Parishioners:
I was notified today that an individual who most recently visited the parish on Sunday, January 3, 2021 and attended Mass has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is receiving the appropriate medical care.
Following government and diocesan protocols, I immediately notified our diocesan officials to make them aware of the situation.
Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and diocesan guidelines, the spaces occupied by this individual will close for an airing out and will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
Out of care and concern for every staff member and parishioner, I urge you to contact your primary health care provider immediately if you feel ill.
Please join me in praying for this individual and all who are affected by COVID-19 at this time.

Cancer Patient Support and Outreach
We have begun to work with the local cancer center to provide for the simple, yet important needs of the patients working through the chemo treatment process. The needs of these patients are simple, yet the support we give goes a long way in helping them through this challenging time. Please consider helping to provide some of the items from the list below. Donations can be brought to St. Anthony's.
Beloved St. Anthony of Padua,
Beseech Our Lord, whom you briefly held here on earth and who now holds you eternally, to restore all that has been lost in my life and all that sin has taken from me. Please pray for me that I might be set on fire for the beauty of the Word of God as you were and that the words of the Lord Jesus Christ be my very life's breath. Help me, O dear Saint Anthony, to lose myself in the eternal embrace of the Holy Trinity and so be found in the love that enlivens the heavens. -Amen.
