CONGRATULATIONS TIMES TWO
This past Tuesday we had Confirmation here at St. Anthony. Bishop Foys confirmed 6 students from the 7th and 8th grade. Click here to see a picture! Congratulations to the following:
We are reminded at Confirmation that we become adults in the Faith and that we become soldiers for Christ. May we always live out our confirmed baptismal promises we make and never be afraid to spread the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ, and defend Him at every turn. May we conform our lives to His in thought, word, and deed!
A great example of living Confirmation can be found in our patron here at St. Anthony whose feast day was also Tuesday. Our patron is St. Anthony the Abbot. We have him to thank for many things. The first is that he is considered the father of monasticism. He lived as a hermit, and because of his holy life, he inspired many to follow his example of living in solitude and dedicated to God. We thank him for inspiring all the religious orders of the world. The second is that we can thank him for us not being Arian. The Arian heresy denies that the Lord Jesus was God from the beginning. He counseled the great St. Athanasius in his mission of putting the smack down on the Arian heresy. Finally, we have St. Anthony to thank for helping with the conversion of St. Augustine. St. Athanasius wrote the life of St. Anthony, and St. Augustine read it and was inspired to live a life of holiness. So never think your life is worthless. Here is this obscure hermit who affected the whole world. Strive for a life of holiness like he did. Persevere in the Faith. Be a sign of hope in Christ for the whole world. We do this with the help of the Holy Spirit!
God bless you,

Prayer Blanket Ministry
Early this summer as our news across the country continued to be filled with our police men and woman being shot at, injured or killed. Teresa Winkler of our Prayer Blanket Ministry wanted to do something for our Taylor Mill Police Force. So after purchasing the material, Debbie Chiarelli, also of the Prayer Blanket Ministry, volunteered to embroider all the names and ranks of all the men and woman on the Taylor Mill Police force and 3 Kenton County Sheriffs onto the prayer blanket. The Prayer Blanket Ministry then met last week to assemble the Prayer Blankets making them with prayers for the men and woman who serve our city. Father Cushing then blessed the blankets and they were delivered to the Taylor Mill Police Department. The blankets were beautiful when completed.
Please continue prayer, not only for the Taylor Mill Police force, but for the safety of all of our men and woman who serve and protect us.
