"A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher."

Luke 6:40

Faith Formation is an important aspect of our parish life. St. Anthony's offers 2 types of programs to fulfill this ministry. The programs include: Traditional Program  and Rite of Christian Initiation.

The Rite of Christian Initiation program is completed in a manner which is most accommodating to the participants.


Children's Liturgy of the Word

Each Sunday, children are encouraged to participate in our Children's Liturgy of the Word program. Children will be called forward to receive a blessing, then depart with their instructors to experience the gospel story in a manner presented for them. Children will return to their families at Offeratory time. This program does not require fees or registration.


Youth Ministry

St. Anthony's Youth Ministry participates in events throughout the year. Each year is unique and new activities are offered. This is an excellent opportunity for the youth in our parish to deepen their faith through creative avenues. See the Youth Ministry page for current activities.


Vacation Bible School

Each summer, St. Anthony's hosts Vacation Bible School. This fun week-long session is always a favorite with our parish's youth.
