Who We Are
St. Anthony's Friary is the Province of the Immaculate Conception's Franciscan presence in Catskill NY which has been here since the end of the 19th century. The current building, dedicated in 1958, was built as the novitiate for the province. The Chapel is a beautiful liturgical space where all are welcome to join in Sunday and Daily Mass. We are proud of the active participation of the worshiper with robust singing and a sincere prayer life. Join us to Praise Almighty God for all of the gifts we have received from Him.
Fr. Joseph Lorenzo, O.F.M.

Stephen ArabadjisTo whom it may concern, My name is Fr. Stephen Arabadjis. I am a member of the Society of St. Pius X. But I am in my 6th year of Sabbatical.Therefore I was hoping your parish could do a 54 day rosary novena for my intentions. But any prayers and sacrifices would be greatly appreciated. I know Our Lady will reward you generously for this. In Our Lady, Fr. Arabadjis P.S. Thanking you in advance, since I don't always get all my communications.
Feliciano MendesMy wife Wendy I are going to start attending services every Sunday. We love Fr. Brennan!
Michael ReganI am so amazed at the daily mass attendees. Some with significant disabilities. It took a while to develop an ability to read the short version of the daily readings but am now familiar with the proceedings and enjoy the mass whenever I can attend. I am 84 years old, a cancer survivor and wear an osteo bag which sometimes makes it difficult to attend but do so when possible. My present wife is very ill and doctors have told us there is no cure. My first wife passed away in 1984 at the age of 44 from complications with breast cancer. I feel welcomed at the Friary. Thank you. Especially, Father Eagen.
