Let us pray for your needs and intentions – you and members of your family, both living and deceased, will be remembered in the Novenas celebrated for your intentions and in the masses offered each day for you.

July 2021

Be remembered in our special DOUBLE Novena of Masses to St. Anthony beginning August 2nd.

Dear Friend,

As children of God, we need to be connected to each other, to our community, to God. St. Anthony shows us the way. He inspires us to reach out to one another in faith and hope.

Together, we turn to St. Anthony for his help. We ask that he intercede on our behalf to the Lord to help us find strength to get through our challenges. We ask him to keep our faith strong and to send us a sign that he is listening. And each day I see this sign so clearly through the kind generosity of our benefactors.

Let us pray together in two Novenas of Masses.

I invite you to reach out to St. Anthony with me in prayer during a special eighteen-day spiritual experience.

The Masses of the Novena in Petition to St. Anthony will be celebrated from August 2nd to August 10th, and the Novena in Thanksgiving will follow from August 11th to August 19th.

These Masses are even more special because they will be celebrated at the beautiful Basilica of St. Anthony in Padua, Italy, in the town where St. Anthony started preaching and where he died.

What are you praying for right now?

Use this special time to ask St. Anthony for your deepest needs -safe pregnancy for your
granddaughter, comfort from the grief of a lost loved one, in thanksgiving for relief from chronic pain for a dear friend – St. Anthony hears you and intercedes for you.

You, your intentions, and loved ones will be remembered in this special double Novena of Masses. Please send your intentions for remembrance.

Please also remember our missionaries among your intentions and if you are able, include an offering of any amount to assist their work here in the United States and in our missions in Central America.

May you feel God’s abundant blessings through our patron, St. Anthony of Padua, and share them with those you love.

Gratefully yours in St. Anthony,


Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
