Many Hands

April is Volunteer Appreciation month, but at St. Anthony’s, we appreciate our volunteers year-round. JustBob was especially appreciative for the many hands who came out to help him clean up the grounds on Saturday. Thirteen volunteers from a wide range of ages came...

Unfolding

It seemed like spring took unusually long to unfold this year, but we are ready for new life once again. Here at St. Anthony’s, the trees are finally beginning to return to life. Each day, more green buds open and leaves emerge on the once-barren branches. The grass...

Welcome!

It seems we may finally be able to actually say “Welcome!” to spring.  We might hastily add, "We hope you stay awhile."  We are enjoying the green, violet, and yellow that is popping up around our grounds almost as much as we are enjoying the warmer temperatures, the...

“It Is Good That We Are Here.”

The title comes from words Peter spoke to Jesus in Matthew’s account of the Transfiguration (17:4). At Mass on Monday, those words were offered to us at St. Anthony’s by Fr. John, the celebrant and leader of a group of priests who meet here monthly. They were offered...

Sometimes when I look through the old Chronicles, I feel like I am in some episode of Twilight Zone because the entry feels like déjà vu all over again. For example, there is this entry from April 1952: Easter Sunday, April 13, proved to be, weather-wise, a rather...

Unsolved Mysteries

When you live and work in a building that is approaching its 103rd birthday, there are bound to be some things you find that are just a mystery. Some mysteries were solved when we found the blueprints or went through old photographs for the Centennial celebrations,...

April Fools

Happy April Fools’ Day! After reading the reflection for this week (and struggling to decide which of two images to use for the reflection), I began to think April 1st feels a bit like a patronal feast for the fools here at St. Anthony’s. Before I have a lot of people...

Hope Springs Eternal

Sunday marked the vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere, the beginning of spring, at least as far as the calendar and Brother Sun are concerned. While the weather and temperatures outside were very spring-like this past weekend, the same cannot be said about...

Roller Coaster Weather

One thing about living in Wisconsin is the precious gift of the variety of seasons that we get to enjoy. Sometimes we even get to enjoy many of those gifts in the same week. Saturday we had snow overnight, but Sunday was sunny and bright. The temperatures did not...
