On Saturday May 21, 2016 this parish community of St. Anthony of Padua in Ray City, Georgia, saw a long-held dream come true when Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer dedicated our new church building. More than 500 people attended the dedication Mass, which was the joyful culmination of a years-long process that felt like a “roller-coaster” ride. Now, we are multicultural faith community that includes African American, a large and growing population of Latino, as well as white and several Asian American families; this multicultural community of faith make us so special and rich because it gives us unity and diversity and with it, we can say to south Georgia and the world, that understanding, tolerance, sacrifice, love, hope, and faith brings people together. We thank God, first, “for leading us on this journey, for if it was not his will, it would not have happened.” Also an enormous thanks to Bishop Gregory Hartmayer, Catholic Extension, and each one of you for opening your hearts and minds to God's will.
