A Home Away From Home

Welcome to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. Here you will find a warm and welcoming place guided by Christ’s words, “Love one another, as I have loved you.” Diverse and united as one through our celebration of the Eucharist, we are a community that offers prayerful worship and loving service to those in need.

St. Anthony of Padua is both a Franciscan Parish and an Elementary School (K3-6). Since 1951, our school has provided high-quality Catholic education that inspires students to think creatively, critically and morally to serve God and His people.

With the grace of God, our parish family has grown to more than 1,300 members. If you are seeking for a more meaningful relationship with Christ and to be of service to His people… Welcome home!

  • Considerations

    The parish is back up from Summer and things are humming along. Religious education has begun, St. Anthony University Courses are being offered, our parish school has waiting lists, and our worship times are full.  What a blessing God gives as we defer to God leading us. Be sure to give in the measure you feel given to by God, your time, talents, treasure.  Nothing here is as good without you as with you.

    May I make a special appeal as we leave the time of baseball and the Gala? We would be wise to concentrate now on our endowment.  This will secure our school for generations. Please consult the school website  http://www.stanthonygreenvillesc.org/donate/planned-giving/ and see the ways you can respond to God’s call. The leaves will be turning and falling soon, let’s offer a bountiful harvest for all the planting God has done in us.  This is going to be a Fall season that pleases the Lord.
    Peace and every good to you.                                              Fr. Patrick
