Welcome to St. Anthony of the Desert. Please visit us! We welcome visitors in a spirit of Christian love. Vespers are at 5:00 PM Saturdays, the Divine Liturgy is at 9:00 AM Sundays. Both are followed with fellowship and food. More information is on our monthly calendar under "Service Schedule." See the sidebar to the left.

Mostly he serves us as priest and pastor, preacher, teacher, and spiritual guide.
