Celebrating the feast of St. Anthony of Padua our 60th Anniversary celebration kicked off with an outdoor liturgy & picnic on June 11th, 2017. Reflections on what parishioners are thankful for appeared in our bulletin each week. An Anniversary Liturgy comemerating the date of the first mass being said, November 17, 1957 was celebrated on Friday the 17th of November, 2017. A Display covering the 60 years of parish life was put up in the parish hall for 6 weeks~ We hope you were able to view it.
“A Time of Thanksgiving”
We asked ~ our parishioners and former parishioners to share their good news. This allowed people reflect on and be inspired by parishioners stories.
These were posted on our “Wall” in the parish hall.

The highlight of the celebration was a wonderful faith inspiring liturgy that included a "community" altar cloth that current and former parishioners of all ages signed and we continue to use during "Ordinary Time".
