Bountiful Harvest October 6, 2018 For 180 years, St. Anthony Catholic Church has been an important part of downtown Davenport. We seek to meet the spiritual needs and sometimes the physical needs of our faith-based community. That is why we not only offer Mass, sacraments and counseling, but also operate the McAnthony Window. In 2017 this food program served almost 12,000 meals to the brothers and sisters in need in our community. In addition, we provided 1700 holiday food baskets to people who need assistance.
We rely on our compassionate and generous parishioners and community partners to keep our Christ-directed mission operating year after year. Even in challenging economic times, this help continues to grow. We appreciate all you have done to share in this merciful task.
Over the course of 2012-2016 St. Anthony Church hosted gala/fundraisers which raised more than $317,000 at a time when the need has never been greater - thanks to you. Again, on October 6, 2018 we will host another Gala - dinner/auction to celebrate our work and to help fund our Care and Share program.
Please consider a monetary gift, a new auction item or an advertisement for this event. Your contribution will be recognized in the printed catalogue that will be used by 175 people in attendance.

We greatly appreciate the individuals, families, and companies who allow us to continue the work of St. Anthony, the patron saint of the poor.
