Welcome to St, Anthony & St. Agnes Parish As Catholics, we believe the Eucharist (Holy Communion) is the real presence of Jesus Christ and that he lovingly offers himself as spiritual nourishment with celebration of the mass. This intimate exchange with our lord strengthens us spiritually and brings us closer to God. It also increases our capacity to love one another more fully and to live in Christian community together. Our parish was established in 1911 by Italian immigrants who brought their most treasured saints, St. Anthony of Padua and Sts Cosmas & Damian and St. Theresa to our parish, so that they may continue to revere them in the way they did in the towns of villages in southern Italy. That Italian culture is part of our heritage at St. Anthony & St. Agnes , where we are devoted to the healing Saints Cosmas & Damian and honor them each year in September. © Copyright St. Anthony & St. Agnes Church Made with Xara St.Anthony & St. Agnes Church 422 Tilden Avenue, Utica, New York 13501 (315) 732-1177
