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.
