  A Parish of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio

Welcome to St. Anthony's Parish Website! You can now find all St. Anthony and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Events on our Calendar and get information on Ministries, Pastoral Council and Religious Education. 

As a diverse parish with two churches we embrace the love of our Lord and his Blessed Mother Mary.  We give all praise, all glory and honor to the beloved Son of God, Jesus Christ, in all that we do for our parish community and our families.

"Christ acts like a loving mother. To induce us to follow Him, He gives us Himself as an example and promises us a reward in His kingdom."
- Saint Anthony de Padua
