Welcome to St. Anthony of Padua Parish

Pastor's Note

 This weekend we celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi, or the Body and Blood of Christ. It is a time for us to reflect upon the great gift that we have received from the Lord Jesus in the Eucharist. How wonderful it is for us to receive Jesus Himself every time we receive Communion. Too many times we receive the Body and Blood out of habit or without reflecting upon this great gift. Jesus wants to be a part of our daily lives and the Eucharist is the best way He can do this. How awesome it is to have our Lord intimately united with us every time we receive Him in the Eucharist. Not only does Jesus unite Himself with us in Communion, but we are also united as brothers and sisters in a special bond as the Body of Christ. Let us take some time this weekend to renew our faith in the Eucharist and to thank our Lord for this wonderful gift!

This Monday we celebrate Memorial Day. It is a day for us to give thanks to God and remember those who have given their lives, so we could be free. Memorial Day is more than a day for cookouts and picnics. It is a day of prayer to God in memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Let us continue to pray for our nation and for those who defend it.

This past Saturday, Matthew Lyons of St. Joseph Parish was ordained a Transitional Deacon for the Diocese of Syracuse. Matthew hopes to be ordained a priest next June. Let us pray for Matt as he takes this big step toward priesthood and continue to pray for more vocations from our parish to the priesthood.
