welcome to our faith family

St. Anthony’s is a parish family that speaks two languages, English and Spanish. We benefit from the richness of a multi-cultural community. Our unity is expressed by bi-lingual celebrations of Christmas, Easter, and other major solemnities, especially Our Lady of Guadalupe. We also host bi-lingual picnics, fundraisers, and other communal activities and out-reach to the poor. Our parish family has grown over the last two centuries. 

Our parish identity has its origins in being people of the plains, people of the mountains and people of the West. We are people of North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, but above all, we are the People of God, His family, members of Christ’s one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church, striving to live our faith as a vibrant stewardship parish, loving God with all our hearts and strength, and loving one another as ourselves, as Jesus taught us.

We strive to help each other live our faith in charity, in fidelity to Jesus Christ and His Gospel, assisted by His grace made abundantly available to us through our worship, the worthy and frequent reception of the Sacraments He instituted, by our prayer, both individual and as a community, and by embracing and living the virtues Jesus taught and modeled for us.

We invoke the special protection and care of St. Anthony of Padua, chosen to be our parish patron, as we seek to imitate his love for the Child Jesus, his humility, his knowledge of the Word of God, and his generosity in serving others.

We remain ever grateful to our parish forefathers and their families, many of whom were Irish shepherd immigrants, who settled on the plains of the old west and established St Anthony of Padua parish in 1921, as the first Catholic parish in Casper.

Casper was the crossroads for many wagon train trails that intersected here, taking settlers out west in the 1800’s.

St. Anthony Parish, too, became the crossroads for people of various cultures, but of one Faith, allowing them to settle and help make the parish grow and thrive on the wind-swept prairie. This included, the Scottish, the English, Italians, Slavs, Germans and Native Americans, to name just a few. St. Anthony’s Church offered them a Faith community and a spiritual home, that allowed them to support each other in practicing their Faith, helping them to remain focused on their ultimate goal to reach the heavenly Kingdom, by persevering together through the challenges of pioneer living.

From such steadfast love and devotion to their Catholic Faith, two additional parishes, a school and a hospital sprang forth: St Patrick’s Parish on the east side of the city, Our Lady of Fatima Parish on the west side, St Anthony’s Tri-Parish School, and the first hospital in Casper which later became Wyoming Medical Center.

At St. Anthony of Padua Parish we remain a people of the plains, the mountains, and the west. But we are grateful that our congregation now embraces parishioners from all parts of the world with many cultural backgrounds. And although we may be cattlemen, shepherds, oil and gas people, coal miners, bankers, doctors, lawyers, police and firemen, business owners, people of the land and laborers, we are above all, “A PEOPLE OF FAITH,” striving to live out the Gospel mandate given to us by Jesus Christ, to love God with all our hearts and minds and strength, and to “love one another as He loved us.”

The people of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church welcome you to our faith family and invite all to become a part of our legacy of being faithful members of the universal Catholic Church.

Birth of Saint John the Baptist

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 1,57-66.80.

When the time arrived for Elizabeth to have her child she gave birth to a son.
Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown his great mercy toward her, and they rejoiced with her.
When they came on the eighth day to circumcise the child, they were going to call him Zechariah after his father,
but his mother said in reply, "No. He will be called John."
But they answered her, "There is no one among your relatives who has this name."
So they made signs, asking his father what he wished him to be called.
He asked for a tablet and wrote, "John is his name," and all were amazed.
Immediately his mouth was opened, his tongue freed, and he spoke blessing God.
Then fear came upon all their neighbors, and all these matters were discussed throughout the hill country of Judea.
All who heard these things took them to heart, saying, "What, then, will this child be?" For surely the hand of the Lord was with him.
The child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the desert until the day of his manifestation to Israel.
