My family joined the parish in 2007 after settling in the Tigard area. Our son has attended St Anthony school since preschool and is now a 7th grader.

A confession, I am not a cradle Catholic! However, after high school I met one! (Cradle Catholic that is!) We were married by Episcopal and Catholic priests. After our two boys were born, Dennis told me he would really like to have the boys raised in the Catholic faith, even though he didn’t attend church regularly. I agreed to this as long as Dennis took an active part in his church. To my delight, he did and I attended with him and the boys. I felt very much at home at St Anthony from the beginning and after a few years I was confirmed. I almost missed my confirmation because of the change to daylight savings time. By the grace of God, we arrived just in time, but I had a very wet head! was this an omen? I had been very active in music while in college so I became part of the music ministry and later as a conator. Over forty years well spent! After the death of my husband in 2007, St Anthony was my rock. Every program at St Anthony in which I’ve been involved has been worthwhile, uplifting and life affirming. So …St Anthony is my home. We do more, we help more, and we love more!
