Find Your Way

 

Dear Friends of The Shrine of St. Anthony,

Peace!

The friars and co-workers have been busy these past few months preparing for the 8th Annual Saint Anthony Festival (formerly known as Saint Anthony Pilgrimage.) We are excited to welcome Dr. Scott Hahn as our guest speaker. Dr. Hahn is a world-renowned speaker, writer, and man of faith. He is in high demand and I invited him 2 years ago and June 9, 2018 was his first open date!

The day begins at 11:00am. and includes two inspiring conferences by Dr. Hahn, two Eucharistic Liturgies, confessions, adoration, and time for private prayer. Candles to light in front of Saint Anthony's relic will also be available by donation. The day concludes with an outdoor Eucharistic procession.

Years ago, we made the decision to make the day a time for pilgrimage in honor of Saint Anthony whose Feastday is June 13th. Although we will have activities for the children we will not have a beer tent, wheels of fortune, or a ferris wheel. This festival is a day for prayer and an opportunity to come to know our Lord through the intercession of Saint Anthony of Padua.

Dr. Hahn will be signing his latest books in the afternoon. Our gift shop will be open for your shopping pleasure. The shop is well-stocked with Dr. Hahn's books and other holy reminders to help you deepen your faith life.

Please plan on attending the day or parts of the day. Your spiritual hungers will be satisfied as well as your human hungers--Chick Fil A will be on the grounds for lunch, and snow cones and other treats will be available for a nominal purchase fee. There is NO FEE for the day but free will offerings are always appreciated.

The entire day is outdoors so please offer a few prayers for good weather. I am already hanging my rosary out the window (that practice always worked for my Mom!) Bring a lawn chair if you are able and be assured of the best seat for the day.

Thanks for all your prayers and support.

See you on the 9th!

Sincerely,

Father Michael E. Heine, OFM Conv.

Director, Shrine of St. Anthony & Carrollton Hall
