Father Octavio Cortez I.V.E.

Fr Octavio Cortez came to St. Anthony's in September, 2015. We thank Fr. Octavio for his dedication and spirituality that he brings to our parish.  Recently St Kilian Church merged with St. Anthony of Padua Church.  We welcome those parishioners here at St. Anthony and consider them to be a great blessing to our parish.

Thank you to all who joined us on September 18th at 10:30am for a special Installation Mass where Bishop Da Cunha formally presented to the parishioners of Saint Anthony of Padua, the pastor he has appointed, Father Octavio Cortez, IVE. to lead the congregation. 
Thank you all for celebrating with us, this  very special event.
