St. Anthony, Consoler of the Afflicted

We invite you for the Mass and prayer every Tuesday at 6:30 PM. During the evening Mass every Tuesday, we will have special prayers to St. Anthony and a blessing with the relic of St. Anthony.

O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.

Assist us in keeping the promises we made at our Baptism. Help us to obtain the grace to walk in the light of faith and to proclaim that faith by the way we live. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
