Dear Parishioners,

Greetings and thank you to all our parishioners who call St Anthony's Parish, Noble Park their home. For the past sixty seven years, thousands upon thousands have identified St Anthony's as their home. We have truly been blessed by the generosity of past parishioners and the astute governance and leadership of some of our Priests and dedicated staff.

In 2019, we completed our plans to renovate our Church. We began 2020 with great hope and anticipation of hosting Parish events to fundraise for our Church renovations. By March, we experienced our first of many lockdowns due to Covid. Public life came to a very abrupt halt.

Our Parish Team, Staff and Parish Leaders have been overwhelmed again by the generosity of our community during and following these challenging times. Many Parishioners made generous donations towards our renovations. Sadly, we were not permitted to attend Mass, which weighed heavily on many people. However, Thanksgiving contributions kept coming in. THANK YOU, YOU WERE AMAZING.

Yes, we do have much to be proud of.  I hope many of you will join us 

on Friday 16th of June 2023 at our Parish Dance, as we celebrate and build our community connections and life. 

I also take this opportunity to invite you to the Solemn Consecration of our renovated Church and New Altar on Tuesday, 20th of June 2023 at 7pm. This celebration is to thank God for the many Blessings we have received here at St Anthony's. We especially give thanks for the gift of YOU.

May we ALL be bold, courageous & generous in our dreaming of all that we hope for during the next three years.
