Dear St. Antoninus family & friends:
In 1975, the Catholic Charismatic Renewal took root here at St Antoninus Church and the parish was “born again” in the power of the Holy Spirit. Since then it has grown into a dynamic, culturally rich, unabashedly Catholic, family friendly community, where lively Spirit-filled worship (especially at Sunday Mass) and a sense of community draw people back each week from near and far.
In the past 45 years, 6 priests and at least 2 religious can trace the roots of their vocations to this little parish. I am one of those priests. Everywhere I go around the Archdiocese and beyond , I meet people who have been impacted by what the Lord has been doing here.
Helping others to have a life changing encounter with our Lord Jesus - that Jesus may be known and loved and served, continues to be the mission which permeates everything we do here. This is needed more than ever as we continue to deal with the the effects of all of the Covid realities.
Would you consider being part of that mission here?
Please come and support our 2021 Thanksgiving Harvest celebration on Sunday, November 14.
Holy Mass is at 10am, followed by our Thanksgiving Harvest luncheon and festivities. This joyful celebration is our primary fundraiser each year for major vital Infrastructure repairs and improvements to continue the Lord’s mission here at St Antoninus. This year 70% of our Thanksgiving Harvest funds will go toward those vital infrastructure projects, 20% will be for general expenses and 10% will be used exclusively to help those in need.
Our goal this year is $150,000. Please consider being a Major Sponsor or Benefactor (see the enclosed pamphlet and sponsorship form). Also, please invite family, friends and business associates – that many others may share in this mission too, building a future for the generations yet to come.
We look forward to your presence and support. May our good God, the Lord of the Harvest, eternally reward your generosity in Christ Jesus Our Lord.
In Jesus through Mary (and St Joseph),
