Welcome to St. Anthony!

Welcome to St. Anthony of Padua parish. For more than 150 years, the St. Anthony family has been a center of spiritual, academic, and community growth through our many ministries.

We invite you to visit us through our Web site or in person. We believe that you will see what makes this church community and our schools so special. Our Ministries & Programs page will also show you how St. Anthony is blessed to receive and give support. 

Feel free to complete the Parish Census Registration Form and return to our parish office by email . You can also drop it in the collection baskets at church or stop by the parish office weekdays from 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. at 101 E. Virginia Ave., Effingham, IL, 62401.

Our stewardship committee would be happy to answer any questions you have and schedule a visit to get to know you better.
