Begin again with us
May the Lord give you peace.
Welcome to the website of St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church and the Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry. I invite you to become acquainted with our website and the variety of ministries, programs, and opportunities described here for deepening your faith and sharing in the ministry of Christ.
As people of faith, we know that we always receive more than we give. In offering a sandwich at the door or serving as a minister of the Eucharist, we encounter the Lord. In holding the hand of a dying loved one or listening to the story of another person’s struggles, we touch the depth of God’s presence in a way that changes our lives forever. Ministry is reciprocal; every encounter is filled with grace!
I invite you to participate in the many opportunities that we offer for worship, ministry, and learning, and I pray always for your good.
Fr. Timothy J. Shreenan, O.F.M., Pastor of St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church
