Welcome to St Anthony of Padua!
New Bedford, MA
Hello and welcome to one of the most beautiful churches in Massachusetts and beyond!
It truly is one of the most beautiful parish churches that you will ever encounter and yet, one that most people still have not heard of or seen! As you view our photo gallery and view its magnificence, it still does not give you the overall beauty of this church. It is only when you come in and look up and around that you understand how the church was built on the tremendous faith of the people. It is faith that builds and without it we build nothing.
The website was designed not so much to see the church but to let you know what is going on in the Parish. The Parish has many different activities going on. The church is not made out of marble and wood but out of people, men and women of sacrifice... more
May God Bless you!
To Jesus through the Blessed Mother.

Saint Anthony of Padua Church welcomes our newest altar servers.
In the front row: Preston Amaral, Michael Goncalves, and Noah Viveiros. In the back row are our seasoned altar servers: John Martin, Rafael Fernandes and George Martin. Of course Father Murphy is standing with them in the very back row.
The craft ladies have now expanded to nine. These ladies meet every Tuesday to make crafts to which the money is donated to the church. Theses Qintin holds a check for the latest donation from the sale of their crafts. Thank you ladies for your hard work, dedication and love for our church.

Father Octavio Cortez I.V.E.
Fr Octavio Cortez came to St. Anthony's in September, 2015. We thank Fr. Octavio for his dedication and spirituality that he brings to our parish. Recently St Kilian Church merged with St. Anthony of Padua Church. We welcome those parishioners here at St. Anthony and consider them to be a great blessing to our parish.
