Join us for the last of three events celebrating our Centennial
The third and final event in our series of Centennial Celebrations will be held on the weekend of August 16-18, 2019. The first of our Centennial events commemorated the purchase of 40 acres of land along the banks of the Rib River in Marathon County by the Capuchin Province of St. Joseph in 1917, while the second of our Centennial events commemorated the laying of the cornerstone of St. Anthony’s in 1918. This year’s event will commemorate the grand opening in 1919 of the St. Anthony Monastery, a house of studies for young men who wished to become Capuchin Franciscan priests.
We cordially invite you to join us throughout the weekend of the 16th for a series of events celebrating the story of this holy ground! Events include a chance to view archival materials, an interactive walking lecture on the horticulture and agricultural practices of St. Anthony’s through the years, a lecture on life at St. Anthony’s by Tony Scannell, OFM Cap, a roundtable discussion of Capuchins’ experiences at St. Anthony’s, a performance by the Superior Diocesan Chorale, Sunday Mass, and more.
Most events are free, but registration is required for planning purposes. Registration details will be coming soon at https://sarcenter.com/
