A Farewell & Blessing from Fr. Kingsley:

My dear parish family of St. Anthony’s,

My heart resonates strongly with gratitude to each of you for everything you have been to me in this past two years. You are truly a blessing to me. It has been such an incredible blessing to strive together in taking our spiritual lives to the ‘next level.’

I wanted to take this opportunity to send a note of thanks and appreciation to you as I move on to my next assignment in ministry. If I could write a letter just filled with words “thank you” over and over, it seems that I would never be able to write enough of them to truly express how I feel about the time I spent here serving as your parochial vicar.

The weekend of June 26/27 in all the masses, when we see each other again, it will be time to say good-bye. Yes, I will have tears in my eye, but there is peace and joy in my heart because I know that God is going to use me at St. Luke’s in Houston for His Kingdom, and He will continue to use you for His Kingdom here in St. Anthony’s.

My heart is truly filled with joy. “The root of joy is gratefulness. It is not joy that make us grateful: it is gratitude which makes us joyful.” (Stendhal-Rast).

Remain in Christ,
Fr. Kingsley Nwoko
Parochial Vicar

Dear St. Anthony of Padua family,

Cardinal DiNardo has announced new priest assignments for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston that will go into effect July 1st.

Fr. Kingsley Nwoko is being welcomed by St. Luke the Evangelist in Houston. Fr. Kingsley has done an incredible job serving the flock at St. Anthony’s for the past two years, and he will be missed by the clergy, staff, and parishioners. Stay tuned for more information about a farewell celebration for Fr. Kingsley.

Fr. David Hust has been assigned to be St. Anthony’s new parochial vicar. Fr. David is a Houston native and a graduate of St. Thomas High School and Franciscan University. He was ordained in 2018 and has served the first three years of his priesthood at St. Vincent de Paul in Houston. We are so excited to welcome Fr. David to our parish and community.

Please keep both Fr. Kingsley and Fr. David in your prayers as they begin their new priestly assignments!
