Two first-class relics of St. Anthony of Padua will be brought from the Basilica of St. Anthony in Padua, Italy, to St. Anthony’s Church in East Falmouth on Monday, August 26.

St. Anthony of Padua, one of the Catholic Church’s most popular saints and patron saint of lost and stolen articles, was a powerful Franciscan preacher and teacher. Pope Gregory IX canonized St. Anthony in 1232.

Veneration begins at 5 PM and confessions will be available. Mass will be celebrated at 7 PM, followed by a reception in the church basement. All are welcome. For more information, call 508-454-0034.
