St. Anthony Wine Tasting Evening 2014
Presented by Catholic Order of Foresters
Are you in need of a Night Out? Or maybe looking for a great wine to pair with the turkey! Join us on Saturday, November 15th, for our annual Wine Tasting Evening featuring the wines from Kentucky’s own Elk Creek Vineyards. Look for all the details coming soon, but don’t wait to pencil us in on your calendars. If you have any questions, would like to volunteer to help, or have items to donate for the silent auction, please contact Chris or Lisa Bottom at email@example.com or 859-581-0748.
St. Anthony’s Parish is looking at the possibility of a youth/young adult choir starting at the ages of 12 years and up to 21 years of age. We are looking for young adults who like to sing and/or play a string or wind instrument. If you are interested in partaking in this venture, please contact Dan Pikar at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call at 859-415-0214. Participation will determine if we have enough voices to maintain an active choir. Practice times will be determined at a future date.
We are in need of Mass Intentions, especially for weekday Masses. Keep in mind that the intentions can be for those living and departed. Some suggestions are to have Mass Intentions for the unborn, special intentions of yourself or another individual, and our service men and women who sacrifice in order to keep us free. Prayer is so very powerful, especially the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is the perfect prayer!! Please contact the rectory to request your Mass Intentions.
A few years ago, we had a project at St. Anthony for parishioners to purchase bricks to memorialize their loved ones. We still have this program available. If anyone is interested in having a brick engraved in memory of a loved one, please contact the office. Forms are available in the back of church.
Gift Bearers have the privilege of bringing to the altar the bread and wine that will be miraculously transformed into the Body and Blood of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Anyone can be an Offertory Gift Bearer; a family, a married couple or two individuals, children or adults. After the homily, as Fr. Matt returns to his chair, the Offertory Gift Bearers get up and proceed to the back of church. The gifts are placed on a table near the last pew. Stand near the table so Fr. Matt and the ushers see you are in place. When Fr. Matt comes down the steps toward the pews, move up the aisle to meet him. Reverently bow as you reach him. Fr. Matt will take the gifts; bow again before you turn away from the altar. The ushers will follow the Gift Bearers with the collection.
Check with the greeters prior to the start of Mass if you wish to be a Gift Bearer for the Mass you are attending. We encourage you to prayerfully consider participating in this manner. What a privilege it is! If you have any questions or concerns, please see Fr. Matt or an usher.

Remke/bigg's Caring Neighbor Gift Card Program: This is how it works: See a Scrip person after mass and ask for a Remke/bigg's gift card. Take the card to your favorite Remke/bigg's store to load under St. Anthony's name. Every time you load the gift card, Remke/bigg's will track the amount and give 4% back to St. Anthony. Please tell the cashier to load the card for you as a separate transaction. If you would like to use the amount loaded on your current purchases, please tell the cashier before he or she starts your order. The card loading transaction must be complete as a separate order. Tell the cashier the amount you want to add. Pay for the 'loaded funds' with cash, debit, or credit card. Then pay for your groceries with your newly loaded gift card. St. Anthony then gets 4% of what you reload. This is a yummy way to help your parish and school!
Krogers Plus Cards: Each time you shop at Kroger and use your Kroger Plus Card, not only are you receiving savings, but also there is a way for the parish to earn rewards as well. This is done by simply tying your Kroger Plus Card to St. Anthony Church online. Simply go to: http://www.kroger.com/mykroger/Pages/community_rewards.aspx and you will be able to create a free account. Once you do, you will be able to scroll down to Community Rewards and search for St. Anthony Church. Then, whenever you shop at Kroger you will be helping the parish as well. You will also be able to see your rewards and print out coupons for yourself as well.
You can now follow St. Anthony Parish on Facebook!
Parish Catholic Lending Libary
Now that we have your attention, we would like to reacquaint you with a service resource that the parish provides. We maintain a well-stocked Catholic Lending Library in the rear of church. There you can find books on the Holy Scripture, church history, lives of the saints, and application of Catholic principals to everyday living along with many, many other topics. Better yet, there are no library cards, dues, or due dates. Simply choose as many books as you wish and place them on any shelf when you return them. We will place them in their proper location. Please avail yourself of this free resource throughout the year.
Did you ever miss a bulletin because we ran out or when you went on vacation? No more worries! Bulletins are now available online for viewing and printing from the parish website. Look for the “Bulletins” link! You can even set up a free subscription to CatholicWeb and get the latest parish bulletin delivered to your email inbox every Sunday morning! You can get other parish bulletins too if those parishes are in the CatholicWeb directory.
Bulletin Deadline: All items, articles, etc. for the bulletin MUST be submitted to the rectory by way of email,
