Year 2 – St Anthony
Welcome to Year 2 - St Anthony
Teacher: Mrs K Dhannie
Teaching Assistant: Mrs T Hogan
Our Class Saint is St Anthony. St. Anthony of Padua is one of the Catholic Church’s most popular saints. Saint Anthony of Padua, patron saint of lost and stolen articles, was a powerful Franciscan preacher and teacher. He’s typically portrayed holding the child Jesus—or a lily—or a book—or all three—in his arms.
St. Anthony of Padua’s life is what every Christian’s life is meant to be; a steady courage to face the ups and downs of life, the call to love and forgive, to be concerned for the needs of others, to deal with crisis great and small, and to have our feet solidly on the ground of total trusting love and dependence on God.
Prayer to St Anthony
Saint Anthony, great wonder-worker,
intercede for us
that God may grant us our request
if it be for the good of our soul.
be our patron, our protector,
and our advocate in life and in death.
