PASTORS CORNER
Together as one, we can accomplish great things. We proved that again by reaching our parish
goal ($140,000) for the 2015 Bishop’s Ministry Appeal. I want to express my gratitude to all who have
given so far. Your generosity has made it possible for the parish to receive training for our Religious
Education teachers and also for our Coordinator of Religious Education, Angelique Gutierrez.
The good news gets even better for the BMA now. Every dollar that we take in now for the Bishop’s
Ministry goes to purchase a baby grand piano, new albs for our altar servers and a new chasuble with the
image of Our Lady of Guadalupe for our priests to wear. Many parishioners have yet to give to this important
Appeal. I want to assure you that it is not too late to give to the Bishop’s Ministry Appeal. In fact, we need
your gift now as much as at the start back in February. You may use the envelopes that are available at the
Church entrances. You can also donate on-line at stocktondiocese.org/BMA. It takes about 5 minutes to
give using your credit card on a secure website.
Thank you again to all who are making the 2015 Bishop’s Ministry Appeal a big success.
Faithfully, Fr. Pat Walker
Second Collection for Catholic Home Missions
The Catholic Home Missions Appeal will take place
next week. One way that this appeal works to
strengthen home mission dioceses in the United
States is by funding seminarian formation in poor
dioceses. The blessing of seminarians places a
financial burden on these dioceses, where educating
each seminarian costs $35-40K per year. Your
support is needed for these young men, so that they
might go back and serve their parishes. Please
strengthen the Church at home by making a
generous gift to next week’s appeal.
Faith Formation News
Please note, that the last week for the 2014-15 Faith
Formation year is the last week in April.

First Communions
For the next two weekends at all Masses
(except for Sunday at 7 am) we will see
many of our youngest parishioners join in the
Eucharist for the first time. As we celebrate
with their families, please remember that we will
have more visitors than usual joining us for our
Masses, please plan accordingly. Congratulations to
all!

SU PALABRA EN ESPAÑOL
Juntos como uno, podemos lograr grandes cosas. Hemos demostrado eso una vez más ahora que
alcanzamos nuestra meta de la parroquia ($140,000 dólares) para la Solicitud Ministerial 2015 del obispo.
Quiero expresar mi gratitud a todos los que han dado hasta este momento. Su generosidad ha hecho
posible que la parroquia recibirá entrenamiento para nuestros Casticistas y también para nuestra
Coordinadora de Educación Religiosa, Angelique Gutiérrez.
La buena noticia es aún mejor para el BMA ahora. Cada dólar que recibiremos ahora para la
Solicitud Ministerial del Obispo va al fondo para comprar un piano, nuevas albas para nuestros servidores
del altar y nuevas casulla con la imagen de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe para nuestros sacerdotes.
Muchos feligreses aún no han dado a este importante fondo. Quiero asegurarles que no es tarde para dar a
la Solicitud Ministerial del Obispo. De hecho, necesitamos su regalo ahora tanto como en el inicio en febrero.
Usted puede usar los sobres que están disponibles en las entradas de la Iglesia. También puede donar por
internet en stocktondiocese.org/BMA. Se tarda unos 5 minutos para usar su tarjeta de crédito en un sitio de
internet seguro.
Gracias de nuevo a todos los que han dado a la Solitud Ministerial del Obispo 2015 un gran éxito.
Con Fe, Padre Pat Walker
Segunda Colecta para las Misiones Católicas
La próxima semana realizaremos el Llamado para
las Misiones Católicas. Una manera en que este
llamado funciona para fortalecer a las diócesis misioneras en Estados Unidos es otorgando fondos
para la formación de seminaristas en las diócesis
pobres. La bendición de los seminaristas pone una
carga financiero en estas diócesis en donde la educación de cada seminarista cueste entre $35 a 40
mil dólares al ano. Su apoyo es necesario para que
estos jóvenes puedan regresar y server en sus parroquias. Por favor, fortalezca la Iglesia en casa
dando una generosa donación al llamado de la
próxima semana.
Ensayo para Comuniones
Padres, por favor noten que el ensayo para la
primeras comunión de sus hijo/a serán el jueves a
las 7:00 p.m. en la Iglesia, antes del fin de semana
en que harán su Primera Comunión. Si tienen
alguna pregunta por favor hable al 239– 4302 y
pregunte por Laura.
Primeras Comuniones
Por las siguientes dos semanas en todas las Misas
(por excepto el Domingo de 7 am) veremos a
muchos de los mas pequeños de nuestra parroquia
recibiendo la Eucaristía por primera vez. Celebrando
con sus familiares, por favor recuerde que
tendremos mas visitantes de lo normal, por favor
planea de acuerdo a esto. Felicidades a todos!
Si usted es nuevo/a la Iglesia San Antonio o desea
registrarse por favor llame (209) 823-7197 .
Abril es él Mes de la Prevención
del Abuso de Niños
Seguridad en el internet: El Internet se ha
convertido en un sitio para que los depredadores
sexuales de los niños puedan victimizarlos. Los
sitios de “chat” proveen a los jóvenes la oportunidad
de tener pláticas en “vivo” con amigos de la escuela
o de la iglesia y hasta con otros chicos en diferentes
partes del mundo. Estos sitios son similares a una
red telefónica, excepto que ellos están escribiendo.
Los diversos departamento de policía han
encontrado que los depredadores sexuales usan
estos sitios para obtener acceso e información de
los jóvenes, por tanto no hay que dejarlos que den
ningún tipo de información personal y mucho menos
una locación física.
Noticias de Formación de Fe
La ultima semana de clases para el año 2014-15

de apoyar a todas las familias pero por favor note
que las clases se llenan rápido. Si su familia va a
regresar para el próximo año, por favor planea
registrarlos temprano. Para mas información y
anuncios visite nuestra pagina de internet
www.st-anthonys.org (oprima Youth Faith Formation

Help Say Farewell to Mrs. Alves!
After 22 years of service, commitment, and
dedication to our children in their Early Childhood
Education, our Preschool Director, Mrs. Alves is
retiring. Mrs. Alves has created a culture in our
preschool that has left its imprint, not only on the
lives of our children, but on the staff and parents as
well. While we are excited for her new season of life,
we are also sad for the loss of a great teacher,
colleague, and friend. Please join us for an Open
House Retirement Celebration on Sunday, May 3,
2015, from 9:30am-12:30pm in the St. Anthony
School cafeteria. Please tell your family and friends
and let’s show Mrs. Alves how many lives she has
touched!
Checkout Central Catholic High School!
Central Catholic High School would like to invite all
8th graders to their Raider Round-Up on Thursday,
April 23 at 6:00 p.m. in the gym. You will meet other
students, coaches and teachers. You will learn what
makes Central Catholic such a special place to go to
high school, you will have fun and enjoy a great
BBQ. Call the office at 524-9611 to reserve your
spot.
April is national Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Internet safety for kids: The Internet has become
the new schoolyard for child molesters seeking girls
or boys to victimize. Internet “chat rooms” provide a
teenager with an opportunity to engage in a “live”
conversation with friends from school or church, or
with other teenagers from around the world. Law
enforcement has found that child molesters use chat
rooms to gain easy and safe access to teens.
Because of the seemingly caring and seductive
talent of child molesters, teenagers should be
warned that when they are in a chat room, they
should never provide anyone with private
information, personal information, and especially
their specific physical location.

Savoring the Experience
One of the wonderful things about vacations is the
time we spend two or three weeks afterward savoring the
experience, sharing vacation photos and memories with
our family and friends. This kind of reflection puts us back
in touch with the original experience and reminds us of
the relaxation and wonder the vacation afforded us.
Today, on the Third Sunday of Easter, the Church
blesses us with reminders of what we celebrated two
Sundays ago. All three readings are reflections on the
meaning of the death and resurrection of Christ. One of
the threads running through these reflections is that the
purpose of the Lord’s suffering, death, and resurrection
was to save us, to forgive our sins. We are given fifty
days to ponder this reality—fifty days to savor the
experience of Christ’s dying and rising for us.
