COVID-19 concerns

COVID-19 concerns

COVID-19 may have stopped our everyday lives. But we have volunteers willing to serve our community and you.

March 21:

On Sunday, March 22, around 10 a.m, the parish will celebrate Mass virtually. Father Vic will lead us in prayer.  The program will be shown on the parish Youtube channel, which you can find by clicking here.

Given the public health emergency in Georgia and the guidance of the Archdiocese of Atlanta, effectively immediately all Masses, meetings, and activities of St. Anthony of Padua Church are suspended until further notice.

We are sad to have to make this decision. We will make every effort to share resources with you to stay connected to your fellow parishioners.

If someone asks why your church chose to respond to this health crisis by closing its doors, here’s my response:

  1. We are loving our neighbors by protecting our neighbors.
  2. We are not being fearful. We are being responsible.
  3. This is what love requires of us in this season.

There are many resources to help fill your spiritual needs. Father Vic and members of the parish are working to provide those to you. Here is a list of Atlanta area parishes providing online streaming or broadcasting to view Sunday Mass.

Here’s another service that offers Sunday Mass at 11 a.m. from Catholic Extension.
