On the weekend of June 12-13,  Holy Redeemer Church, 15712 Kipling, will hold the Festival of St. Anthony.  Saint Anthony was a famous teacher and preacher and a popular follower of Saint Francis of Assisi.  He worked tirelessly for the poor.  June 12 at 4 p.m. Mass will be held followed by food and musical entertainment. On June 13, a 10:30 Mass by the celebrated Bishop Anthony Pilla will be held, followed by a religious procession with Saint Anthony's statue. The festival will run from 1-8 p.m. with musical entertainment and food. There will be a Saint Anthony  treasure hunt for children from 3 to 9 years of age at 3 p.m. There will be a balloon artist present for the children.  Come and enjoy some good Italian food---pizza and sausage sandwiches, fried dough, tripe, cavatelli and meatballs and Italian pastry.  Many cultural and religious groups gather in community to celebrate the heritage of Saint Anthony.  Carrying the statue is a way to remember to strive to live the values and virtues he had.
