Find Your Way
Dear Friends of St. Anthony,
Thank you for visiting our web page.
Advent is a time to wait in joyful hope! We wait the second coming of Jesus who can return at any time. We always need to be ready. Not looking over our shoulder in fear but in joyful hope that when Jesus does come again He will find us watching and waiting. The Friars invite you to watch and wait here at the Shrine. Stop by during your holiday shopping or other outings and enter the quiet of our chapel. There you will encounter the Jesus who came to us in the silence of night. Take advantage of the Sacrament of Reconciliation offered six days a week - don't be afraid if you have not celebrated the Sacrament for a long time - Jesus is waiting to forgive you so when he comes again you will be ready. Enjoy the gift that is the Shrine during Advent and Christmas.
