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

    As we move from school to Summer life you will note that St. Anthony’s will conduct a hybrid!  Our school and parish will combine this summer to have increased academic support and challenges for our neighborhood and school children while at Camp Summer Wings.  We need 20 scholarships to welcome all the students we hope to serve.  Each scholarship costs $500.  You can go in with 2 or more others and be able to help.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       The parish is actively completing proposals to the Diocese for capital renovations such as the lobby which has horrible, non-Americans with Disabilities Act compliant bathrooms, an extension of the church to get the lobby people inside – this extension would mirror the newer section in the front right of the church with a new one to match it on the front left side. We also hope to create a more attractive wall where the waterslide was built and to make a new meeting room out the front lawn near the tall cross.  All these have been on the master plan for a long time.  God willing, and stewardship remaining strong, we won’t need a capital campaign.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Lastly, hasn’t it been great having Fr. Jack join the ministry?  AWESOME DUDE! he always says.  He may be certifiable.  Not to mention TJ and the amazing St. Anthony University.  I hope you’re signed up to let in the very adult level of how great our faith tradition is.  We welcome Pat Dillard to school board president and say a sad farewell to James Satterfield as he accepts a new position with his wife at Michigan State University, a real move up for them!  Paulette Payne and Susan Cinquemani will head up the school board when Pat’s term as interim for James ends.  Great changes for all, though change is hard.  Welcome Furman interns!!!  Here they come! We are hoping for 5 and they will be busy.  I hope you will welcome their amazing decision to give themselves away to Christ and His Church.                            Fr. Patrick
