Taos Mission Trip

On June 9, we will embark on a journey northwest to the town of Taos, New Mexico. With over 40 teens, we will put our hands and feet to work, serving those in need who are parishioners at the St. Francis of Assisi Mission Church. We'll be getting down and dirty re-mudding the mission, putting smiles on people's faces, white water rafting, dancing, praying, and more importantly increasing our faith each day we do. Every day for 3 days we will post everything we did. Stay posted for news, photos, and adventure!

St. Anthony of Padua

Now days, we tend to misplace a lot of our things in life. From keys to phones, all of those small things it seems like. If you go even smaller than that, you find our faith. Our faith is so valuable to us, so essential, it is so vital that when lost, it can be prayed for to St. Anthony to return, just like those keys that we lose.  St. Anthony of Padua is the patron saint of lost or stolen items, this also means to ask for those virtues that have been lost. Those like Faith, hope, obedience, prudence, even love. During St Anthony's lifetime, he often felt a profound longing to step aside from the bustle of his active life and seek the face of God in silent contemplation. He wanted to find out faith for himself, and sometimes we should do the same. "Tony, tony, turn around, something's lost and must be found."
