Prayer

“Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Prayer Line

Many of our parishioners serve on the prayer line. They pray for the needs of our friends and family; our parish and community.


You are welcome to participate in the prayer line. Join us as we pray for the many needs of our neighbors. Volunteer to serve in this prayer ministry with our contact person. You will receive a call to pray as new prayers are requested. 


To request prayer for your loved one, call our contact person. You may choose to have your prayer request listed in the church bulletin, or kept private.

Prayer Partners (Jail Ministry)

Our parishioners also pray for those who are incarcerated. We have an active jail ministry here at St. Anthony’s and we support this ministry with prayer. Each participant receives the name of a prisoner and prays for this person until they receive a call to pray for someone new. 


Anyone can participate in this meaningful ministry, even those who live outside the area. If you wish to become a Prayer Partner, please give our contact person a call. We welcome all who are willing to pray.

Eucharistic Adoration


We pray before the Blessed Sacrament for 24 hours on each First Friday of the month. Adoration begins after the 8:30 am Mass on Friday (9:00 am) and continues until 9:00 am on Saturday morning.


There is a signup sheet available in our Gathering Area for about a week before Adoration. Please select a time when you can devote yourself to an hour of prayer. We try to have two or more people in prayer at all times.


Join us in adoration, meditation and prayer to Jesus, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament!


“Could you not keep watch for one hour?” Mark 14:37

Individual Prayer / Stop By Our Church Anytime!



Are you in town running errands? Stop by St. Anthony’s to pray.


It has long been Catholic tradition to make a “visit” to Jesus, present in the Blessed Sacrament.


There are kneelers and chairs for your use near the Tabernacle behind the altar, and a ramp for easy access to this area.




The many vigil candles in our church are also an ancient Catholic tradition.


They remind us that Christ is our true Light. The burning candle is symbolic of our prayer rising to heaven.
