Clothing Donations to the Poor

Many parishioners have been generous in the response to the need for winter coats. Please note that the clothing depot at Saint Edward Food & Wellness Center is currently filled, and donations cannot be accepted unless cleared by Lori Porcaro or Father Ed. Unsolicited bags of clothes randomly dropped off at the Food Center or Parish Office will be given to Goodwill Industries or discarded. Recently someone attempted to drop off clothing at Holy Family Home that contained used men’s underwear. No clothing donations can be accepted there as the needs of the residents are met through Saint Edward Food & wellness Center. Your cooperation is appreciated.

my Parish App

Saint Anthony has launched my Parish Mobile App for I phone and Android smart phones. This will allow us to better communicate with you throughout the week and keep you updated with relevant parish news and updates. This app is very well designed and very intuitive. It will be a great resource for parishioners by providing daily mass readings, Catholic news, and prayers, convenient prayer and confession reminders, our bulletins, announcements and more. We hope for our new app to be a tool for fostering stronger parish life at Saint Anthony and better engaging the New Evangelization.
