The parish of St. Anthony of Padua was established in Dutchtown in 1863. Under the leadership and vision of the Franciscan Friars of the Sacred Heart Province, the parish of St. Anthony of Padua continues to be a cornerstone in the Dutchtown community, growing with and serving the local neighborhood.
Both families with ties to the original German parishioners and those representing St. Louis’ diverse cultures of today are proud to call St. Anthony of Padua their spiritual home.
