All liturgies and parish programs are cancelled until at least July 1st.

Welcome to St. Anthony's!

NEW ANNOUNCEMENT from our Pastor, Fr Pete:


Dear St. Anthony’s Parishioners,
This week the Diocese of Cleveland has published extensive guidelines, in compliance with government directives for churches that are able to begin the reopening process.

After reviewing the guidelines in consideration of our particular circumstances and discussing them with the Diocese, it has been determined that it will be impossible to reopen St. Anthony’s before my retirement date of June 30, 2020. The process for reopening will be the work of the next pastor/administrator following July 1, 2020.

There are many levels involved in the reopening process including a large enough space for social distancing, trained committees for crowd control and sanitation before and after each service, a ventilated space, ample supply of masks, sanitizers, etc. There is much groundwork to be done on how to implement and adhere to the new government and diocesan policies during liturgies, particularly when addressing the practice of receiving communion and sacramental celebrations. All sacramental celebrations in this Diocese, including First Communions,Confirmations, RCIA, and Ordinations have already been moved to late summer or early fall.

The logistics of the total celebration here in our small space need to be discussed and organized before St. Anthony’s can consider reopening. Moreover, given the situation, all committees and parish programming, except for the Ecumenical Foodbank, will be put on hold until a new pastor/administrator is assigned.

The Diocese is still in the process of searching for a new pastor/administrator. I will continue to make available masses online until Sunday, June 28, 2020.

I understand it is difficult to not have the opportunity to properly say goodbye before my retirement date. We will find time in the future to do so in person. I will broadcast a farewell message in June.

You will remain in my prayers, as I know I am in yours.
Be safe. Fr. Pete

We Love you!
We are in unprecedented times. It is not in our nature to be still, especially in today's fast paced world, but that is just what we are asked to do. 
All Liturgies will be suspended until July 1st, 2020. 
Parish programs on St Anthony property are postponed until July 1st, 2020 .
Please take this time, to appreciate one another. Take time to talk to one another and listen to each other. And PRAY! Listen for God's voice at this time. A wise friend once said,
"When it seems to be the darkest, it is then our God is closest to us" 
May God Bless you always, keep you safe and hold you in the palm of His hand!
