Dear Friends in Christ,
As the Pastor of St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Krotz Springs, I welcome you to our website. Please take a moment to browse around, and you will get a great introduction into the life of our parish. Our staff and many volunteers play a central role in nurturing the life of faith in this parish. I am grateful to have the blessing of serving the people of Krotz Springs and St. Anthony Parish – and to accompany and shepherd them in their journey towards Christ. Our parishioners strive to be devout and generously share their time, talent, and treasure.
Here on our website, you will find about about what is happening in our parish. I would like to encourage our parishioners to frequently check the calendar for current events. Here’s a snapshot:
The spiritual life of our parish is centered around the Holy Mass, which is offered daily, Monday through Saturday and, of course, Sundays. The Holy Sacrament of Confession is also regularly offered throughout the week, giving ample opportunity to experience God’s mercy. The preparation we offer for the Sacrament of Marriage gives engaged couples a personalized Marriage preparation program. Parents and Guardians are invited to be more engaged in the life of their children’s Sacramental journey as instructional seminars are offered for parents of children receiving Baptism, First Penance, First Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation.
Continuing to ask God’s blessing upon our parish of St. Anthony and with prayerful best wishes to all those who visit this site, I remain,
Rev. Fr. Michael DeBlanc
