St. Anthony's Parish
We were established as a parish in 1953, serving the communities of Windsor Park, Elboya, Park Hill, Manchester, Meadowlark Park, and Britannia. Since then the area has grown and we now serve Bel-Aire, Mayfair, Kelvin Grove, Kingsland, and Eagle Ridge.
In 1995, the Extraordinary form of the Mass, sometimes known as the old Latin Mass, was welcomed to the parish and we have been forming one parish together ever since. We have masses every day in both the ordinary and extraordinary form, and have a prayerful community when we worship.
One of the great gifts of the parish is our perpetual Adoration Chapel which began in 2003. People have been giving an hour of their time to pray in the presence of our Lord. We offer many programs in the church and would be happy to support parishioners to be involved in any of them.
St. Anthony of Padua
St. Anthony of Padua is one of the most famous disciples of St. Francis of Assisi. He was a famous preacher and worker of miracles in his own day, and throughout the eight centuries since his death he has so generously come to the assistance of the faithful who invoke him, that he is known throughout the world.
St. Anthony was born in the year 1195 AD at Lisbon (Portugal) where his father was a captain in the royal army. Already at the age of fifteen years, he had entered the Congregation of Canons Regular of St. Augustine and devoted himself with great earnestness both to study and to the practice of piety in the Monastery at Coimbra (Portugal).
In 1227 AD, St. Anthony was elected Minister Provincial of the friars living in northern Italy. Thus he resumed the work of preaching. Due to his taxing labours and his austere penance, he soon felt his strength so spent that he prepared himself for death. After receiving the last sacraments he kept looking upward with a smile on his countenance. When he was asked what he saw there, he answered: “I see my Lord.” He breathed forth his soul on June 13, 1231 AD.
Pope Gregory IX enrolled him among the saints in the very next year. At Padua, a magnificent basilica was built in his honour, his holy relics were entombed there in 1263 AD. From the time of his death up to the present day, countless miracles have occurred through St. Anthony’s intercession, so that he is known as the Wonder-Worker. In 1946 AD, St. Anthony was declared a Doctor of the Church.
