"In virtue of their rebirth in Christ there exists among all the Christian faithful a true equality with regard to dignity and

the activity whereby all cooperate in

the building up of the Body of Christ..."

Catechism of the Catholic Church, 872


"All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every good work."

II Timothy 3:16-17 NAB

Do you feel the calling to proclaim the Word of God in order that the faithful may clearly hear the instructions and promises of God? 

We invite you to participate in the Holy Mass as a Lector, offering your holy voice to Sacred Scriptures. Please contact Father Daniel to be assigned to the lectionary schedule.


"Sing a new song to the LORD,

for he has done marvelous deeds. His right hand and holy arm have won the victory."

Psalm 98:1 NAB

Has God given you the talents of singing or playing sacred instruments? Our community would love to join you in offering a joyful song to the Most Holy Trinity.

We invite you to participate in our liturgy by leading the faithful in song. From simple chant, to hymns, to Schubert's Ave Maria, we welcome the beautiful diversity of sacred and liturgical music. What can you offer?


"Christ, our high priest celebrates... the heavenly liturgy, with the holy Mother of God, the apostles, all the saints, and the multitude...who have already entered the kingdom."

Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1187

Our community welcomes all people of faith to consider serving at the Altar, with Our Lord and the hosts of heaven. To act as a minister during the Holy Mass requires training, dedication, and, most importantly, a desire to sincerely love Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

Please contact Father Daniel to begin training for your first Holy Mass as

a minister of the Altar or Intercessor.


"Be eager to present yourself as acceptable to God, a workman who causes no disgrace, imparting the word of truth without deviation."

II Timothy 2:15 NAB

As Catholics, we are called to study and grow in our faith. Our community believes that practical Christian education helps prepare us, and our families, for the joys and struggles of life. One of the greatest gift a parent can give their child is a foundation of inclusive Catholic faith based on the merit and love of Jesus Christ and his mother, Mary.

With St. Anthony, as our guide, we offer teaching classes for children and adults. We also offer preparation for the Holy Sacraments. Please contact Father Daniel to schedule a time to learn or to share your talents as a catechist or teacher of the faith.


"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained by the world."

James 1:27 NAB

Just as Christ, Our Lord, reached out to the very ends of the Earth, with sacrificial love, we too are called to merciful outreach. 

Our community is always looking for individual(s) who are willing to pray, discern, and help us offer services and tangible goods to those in need. Such outreach must be rooted in the Holy Eucharistic, an extension of being and serving the Body of Christ. 

We recently completed a Food Drive for Mobile Loaves and Fishes.


"He has shown might with his arm,

dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart. He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones

but lifted up the lowly."

The Virgin Mary

With the Blessed Mother as our guide, we know that we are called to proclaim justice for all God's children.

Do you have a heart for those whom society ostracizes and deems less?

Can you help lead our community in being a voice for the voiceless? We need volunteers who seek the fulfillment of Our Lord's prayer, "thy will be done on earth as in heaven."

From the grounds of the Texas Capitol, to local rallies, to sitting with those enduring suffering, let us discern together how to join

Our Lady and stomp the unjust serpent of old.


"...everything must be done properly and in order."

I Corinthians 14:40 NAB

A Catholic parish cannot run properly, nor minister to the needs of the faithful, without a group of dedicated servants with administrative skills. As our community grown we will need trained servants of the Church, volunteers, who will consider assisting with:


Parish Council 

Accounting and Finances - Thank you to Melissa who has taken on this work! 

 Liturgical Planning

Pray, discern, and then commit to the mission of Our Lady!


Under your patronage

we rake refuge Holy Mother of God;

our petitions do not despise,

but of all dangers deliver us always

glorious Virgin & Blessed.
