St. Patrick-St. Anthony, Connecticut's oldest Roman Catholic Church, is an urban ministry located in downtown Hartford. Building on our proud heritage, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the example of St. Francis of Assisi, we, as disciples of Christ by baptism, witness the Living Word of the Gospel in everyday life through worship, healing, preaching, teaching, service and daily work. Therefore, as a community of faith in service to the Archdiocese of Hartford and responding to the priorities of Holy Name Province, we welcome and extend hospitality to all people, especially the alienated and the poor.
St. Patrick – St. Anthony Parish and The Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry is a welcoming and dynamic community of Christian disciples. Rooted in the Franciscan experience of the Roman Catholic tradition, we proactively endeavor to extend hospitality both at the Eucharistic Table and as we minister reciprocally and in solidarity among the alienated and the poor, nurturing the mind, body, and spirit in the Greater Hartford Community. praise, to thanks and to love.
