Welcome to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church
Since 1863, St. Anthony of Padua Parish has been a source of faith and hope in our city of St. Louis.
The Franciscan Friars of the Sacred Heart Province arrived in Southern Illinois from Germany in 1858, and just five years later, with the help of some very dedicated and hardworking future parishioners, the parish began. It has grown and prospered over the years and remains a place of WELCOME and PEACE for many throughout the region.
The Franciscans and all of our parishioners welcome you to come to St. Anthony’s at any time. Please visit us, worship with us, join us! We hope you find all the information you need on our website. If not, then please give us a call, or better yet, come for a visit.
The Franciscans and the parish of St. Anthony of Padua have been in the Dutchtown neighborhood since 1863.
Their beginnings started with a house donated by a local resident, Mr. Witnell. The first church was built on the corner of Meramec and Compton Streets. The Franciscan Friars of the Sacred Heart Province have helped to provide for the material, spiritual, and sacramental needs of the German residents of the Dutchtown community since their arrival.
