​HISTORY
On Saturday May 21, 2016 this parish community of St. Anthony of Padua in Ray City, Georgia, saw a long-held dream come true when Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer dedicated our new church building. More than 500 people attended the dedication Mass, which was the joyful culmination of a years-long process that felt like a “roller-coaster” ride. Now, we are a multicultural faith community that includes African American, a large and growing population of Latino, as well as white and several Asian American families; this multicultural community of faith makes us so special and rich, because it gives us unity and diversity and with it, we can say to south Georgia and the world, that understanding, tolerance, sacrifice, love, hope and faith brings people together. We thank God, first, “for leading us on this journey, for if it was not His will, it would not have happened.” Also an enormous thanks to Bishop Gregory Hartmayer, the Catholic Extension Society, and each one of you for opening your hearts and minds to God's will. 

PARISH GOAL
Led by the Holy Spirit, rooted in the Eucharist, St. Anthony of Padua a multicultural faith community gives the example that unity is possible in diverse situations. We pray for God’s help to grow in sharing our time, talent, and treasure more effectively in a committed effort of prayer, education, service and the pastoral care of all our parishioners.
