Dear Loving people of God and family of the Lord in St. Anthony of Padua Parish.
I would like to thank you all for all the support, love and concern for each other and parish in this time of troubles and worries. Together with the Lord we can overcome everything because we trust in Him. In God's hands we are always safe. And so our prayer for each other is
"Dear God, thank you for another day. Watch over our families and friends and whoever is reading this, bless them in a way they have never known before".
It is said,
"The most difficult task is to make everybody happy, the simplest task is to be happy with everyone".
This week gospel is so true of us as the faithful one of God, the seed that fell on the rich soil, producing fruit, a hundredfold. Let us continue to pray for each other, support each other and love one another.
"A smile and the words "God bless you" can really make someone’s day".
With the sorrowful heart, I am so sorry to inform you all that our Business Manager Chris Crescimanno, is very sick with cancer and he is in very bad shape. In your name and in the name of our Parish, I send our Prayers and love to his wife Jennie and family. Please pray for him so that he may recover his illness. He had been in our parish so many years, working hard and part of our lives in every way. So please support him with your prayers.
Please watch this video and pray with this song for our bother Chris and his family.
It is a great pleasure for me, as the Pastor of our Parish, to welcome you to the website of the Parish community of St. Anthony of Padua, in Beautiful Rocky Point, New York.
I am delighted that you have chosen this opportunity to share in the life of our Parish as portrayed in words and pictures.
