The Patron Saint of our parish is Saint Anthony, the 4th century hermit monk in the desert of Egypt, one of the founders of Orthodox monasticism. Please check the life of our Patron Saint on the LIFE OF SAINT ANTHONY page. On his Feast Day on January 17 our parish celebrates its Name Day usually honored with the presence of our Metropolitan bishop Evangelos of New Jersey, with full liturgical celebrations and a great Dinner-Dance. Look out for coming related announcements below.
