St. Anthony School 7th and 8th grade students attended the Liturgy to begin the school year on Wednesday, Aug. 28. Students from 19 schools in the Diocese of Corpus Christi attended the Mass celebrated by Bishop Michael Mulvey. The Mass coincided with the Feast of St. Augustine whose mother, St. Monica, was a devout Catholic and prayed for his conversion throughout his troubled life.

The Bishop emphasized keeping the faith just like St. Monica. Bishop Mulvey also encouraged the students to think about their vocations, especially in serving as priests and nuns.
