Welcome to St. Athanasius Parish
We Are Family...We are Friends...We Are Church
St Athanasius Parish is a welcoming community of believers committed to sharing God's love. At our core is the Eucharist which calls us to use our unique gifts to serve others. Built through a century of stewardship, our liturgies and ministries are centered in Jesus Christ and inspired by the Holy Spirit to nurture and spread our faith.
We will celebrate a Mass during the Wednesdays of Lent, beginning on March 19. Following Mass, we will serve a Meager Meal down in Athanasian Hall.
Stations of the Cross
Every Friday at 7:00 pm in the Church
The Light Is on for You
This Lent on the evening of Wed., March 12, from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm, rediscover the healing power of the Sacrament of Reconciliation at any Catholic parish in the Diocese. If you've been away for a long time, don't worry. We'll leave the light on for you...
Coming Home Again
Begins Sunday, March 9th from 7 – 8:30 pm
Do you know someone struggling with their faith?
Maybe they’ve been away from Mass, or are drifting away. They could be a family member, a friend, or a neighbor, hurt by the church, or confused, or angry.
If so, prayerfully consider inviting them to our Lenten series COMING HOME AGAIN, which begins Sunday evening, March 9th in the Community Center from 7 – 8:30 p.m.

St. A's Parishioner, Nick Doyle, Earned Eagle Scout Rank
St. A's Parishioner, Nick Doyle, became an Eagle Scout on March 1. Earning the rank of Eagle Scout is one of the most prestigious and challenging achievements in any youth program-only seven percent of all Boy Scouts in the United States were so honored in 2012. That makes the number of Eagle Scouts who have come from Troop 377 at St. Athanasius Parish quite remarkable. Read more about this in the upcoming issue of the Parish Window.
