Who we are

Our Mission

We, the parishioners of Saint Anthony's Church, exist to continue the mission of Jesus Christ.
We gather to publicly express our faith, our communion with God and with one another.
Together, we will work:

to proclaim the Gospel effectively,
to recognize the signs of holiness all across the parish,
to deepen that holiness throughout the parish by prayer, sacrament & personal example,
and to help people worship God in the best way possible.

In this task, with God's help, we hope that every member of the parish will have the opportunity to grow to the fullness of his or her Christian vocation.

Our Parish Stewardship Prayer

Gracious and Loving God, we have gathered as a community to listen to your Word, and to share in the Eucharist.
May your eternal Word and the living Eucharist transform us into good stewards of your abundant blessings, and teach us to open our hearts to the needs of the Church and to the voices of the poor.
Watch over us with loving care, and help our parish to grow in faith, hope and love.
Fill your Church with generous hearts, that also respond to your call to the priesthood and religious life.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

Prayer for Generosity​

Dear Lord,
Make our church a place of generositywhere people work together as a family, and share all that they are and all they have.
Teach us to be as generous as You have been generous with us.
Teach us that all that we have are gifts from You.
And gifts, Lord, are meant to be shared.
Show us the joys of generosity.
Help us to understand that others depend on us for help.
Remind us that our world, our parish, need “Good Samaritans” to serve the needs of our times.
May all our service help build the kingdom of God, and may our obedience bring true freedom, our generosity increase love, our sacrifices bear much fruit.
Amen.

History of St. Anthony's Church Calgary Calgary AB

St. Anthony's Parish was formed in 1953 when Calgary had a population of 180,000. Serving the Catholic community, then, at the southern limits of the city, was St. Mary's Parish. The title, "St. Anthony" was of interest because a small school by that name was already located in the aread of the proposed church. In actual fact, the proper title of the church and parish is St. Anthony of Padua, which is in distinction from other saints of that name, eg St Anthony Hermit.

On May 1, 1953, Bishop F. J. Carroll canonically established the new parish of St. Anthony to serve the residents south of 34 Avenue, with Father R. P. Sullivan appointed as the first pastor. He rallied the forces for new parishioners within the community and celebrated the first Mass on July 1, 1953, in the former St. Anthony School. Masses took place there for a few Sundays, then moved to the nearby public school, because of the large crowds.

Pastor and parishioners then formulated plans for a new combined church and hall at the present location (5340 - 4 Street SW) and construction began on September 1, 1953. With the hard work and determination of the pioneer parishioners, completion of the church became a reality on November 1, 1953, and Christmas Eve Mass took place on the main floor of the original hall.

Then on March 6, 1957, Father Sullivan established a building committee to plan for a new church. After many meetings and building fund drives, a sod-turning ceremony took place on August 1, 1959. Construction of the current St. Anthony church began on August 1, 1960. The laying of the new church's cornerstone was on December 31, 1960. Construction finally finished in 1961, along with the solemn blessing of the church. Celebration of the first Solemn High Mass took place on June 25, 1961.

During those times, St. Anthony's parish family grew from 50 to 3,600 parishioners.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer Come Lord Jesus!
Lord Jesus, master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas. We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day. We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us. We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom. We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence. We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light. To you we say, "Come Lord Jesus!"
