Mens Prayer Group

We want to continue to invite others to join our tri-parish men’s prayer group. We spend time with scripture, reflect on it’s meaning in our lives, and then share with God and each other our understanding of His word in our everyday experiences. All men are new, so help develop our program. All men, younger and more senior are invited to spend some time with the Lord and each other! Our next meeting starts at 6:30 pm sharp, on Tuesday, March 20th in the Trinity Chapel at St. Anthony Church. We conclude approximately 7:30 pm.

Clothing Drive For the Village of El Rosario

This year our church will not be heading to Guatemala for a mission trip, but we still have intentions to help their community. Over the next few weeks of Lent our Youth Ministry Program will be running a Clothing Drive for the children at the Village of El Rosario in Guatemala. We will be collecting children’s clothes for children in grades 1-5. We are asking for new or as new as possible clothing. These children live in warm climates meaning we are seeking summer clothing. Some possible options are shorts, t-shirts, socks, or underwear. There will be designated areas located in the back of the church to drop off the clothing. This drive will run throughout lent and will be shipped to the children
