THE ST. ANTHONY OF PADUA PARISH TOWN HALL MEETING
The Parish Town Hall Meeting is our annual general assembly, kind of like a shareholders meeting or a local caucus. It is a chance for the whole parish to hear what's going on, to contribute ideas, to make constructive criticism and to ask critical questions, an opportunity for the leadership of the parish to account for their stewardship, and a time for everyone to affect our common future. You definitely do not want to miss this!

REPORT TO THE PARISH
FROM THE TOWN HALL MEETING OF MAY 7, 2017
The different councils and groups made their report in the form of a Power Point slide show, available for download here.
Between 2005 and 2010, St. Anthony's Parish worked out and approved an ambitious building project for our growing, vibrant community. The plan, approved by the parishioners and by the bishop's office, had three phases.
Remember - you can always write to the Pastoral Council about this or any other topic using the e-mail address
Any letter to that address is automatically forwarded to all members of the council. Any letter concerning the building project, we will also forward to the members of the Steering Committee.
