Find Your Way

Dear Friends of St. Anthony,

The month of November is a time to remember and give thanks. We recall the lives of all those who are now living in heaven and thank the Lord for the gift that they were to us. We also count our blessings and offer a word of thanks to the God who has been so generous to each of us. The friars invite you to come and visit the Shrine of St. Anthony this month especially on Thanksgiving eve. Are you looking for something to do with those relatives who come to Thanksgiving dinner and don't leave-bring them to the Shrine on the Saturday following Turkey Day for our third annual open house-Fall Festival. You are always welcome on Folly Quarter!


Fr. Michael E. Heine, OFM Conv.

Conventual Franciscan Friar Father James McCurry reminisces about his personal meetings with Bl. Pope John Paul II. At turns humorous and poignant, each of Fr. James' encounters with Pope John Paul II reveal aspects of the soon-to-be-Saint's life and ministry.
