God Bless Our First Communicants ~ Summer 2020

We celebrate and congratulate 14 of our 2nd grade students who, accompanied by their parents and families, received their First Communion this summer over three of our parish Sunday Masses. While our April First Communion was postponed due to the pandemic, St. Anthony's was thrilled to celebrate this very special sacrament with our parish children and their families. We're looking forward to celebrating with the rest of our students and their families in September!

Due to COVID-19 and in an effort to ensure the best possible, safest, and most consistent program for our families & volunteers, St. Anthony’s Religious Education Program will utilize the Whole Family Catechesis Home Based Program for the upcoming 2020-21 program year. This will the only option offered. Links to an overview of the Whole Family Catechesis Program, the Handbook and Registration Link are below.

All private school families are asked to contact Angela before the beginning of 6th grade to receive all the necessary information to work in conjunction with the private school their child is attending.
