4B---January 29, 2004 The Cuba Free Press, " PARISH OF ST. ANTHONY OF PADUA L St. Anthony to hold dedication and open house After a 60-year wait, the big day at St. Anthony is near! On Sunday, Feb. 8, 2004 the Parish of St. Anthony of Padua on 201 W. Springfield Road in Sullivan, Missouri will proudly host the formal dedication and blessing of its wonderful spa- cious new school and parish center. Father Ted Brunnert, the local parish pastor, and Most Reverend Robert J. Hermann, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, along with many other area digni- taries will lead the ceremonies which will start at 2 p.m. in the church and then process to the new .school. A big crowd is expected. St. Anthony Parish, compris- ing about 350 Catholic families in the Sullivan area, has actu- ally had a school since 1936 and shortly thereafter built the stone school on site. Over the years, as enroll- ment grew, the parish added an outbuilding, then a trailer and then a second trailer. Interest in the elementary and middle school persisted but an expan- sion and modernization was obviously needed to accommo- date the growing student popu- lation. Around 1999, a parish build- ing committee headed by parishioner Denny Marquart was formed to design a new school and spearhead the drive for funding. As excitement and plans dveloped, an outside fundrais- ing group was hired to see if sufficient funds could be pledged for the project. When the dust settled, thanks to a generous contribution by the Padre Pio Providenzia Trust Foundation, over $1,500,000 was pledged for a new school. With this as a base, the parish went to the Archdiocese of St. Louis for a supplemental construction loan. This effort was also successful. Horn Architects AIA was hired to design a flexible mod- ern building which could serve the parish for years into the future. The final design incor- porated seven classrooms, an 8,000 square foot gym, a mod- ern kitchen, cafeteria, a library and media center, an office area with a teachers conference room and sufficient space for storage, a furnace room rest- rooms, lockers and attractive foyer. Enrollment in St. Anthony's Catholic school has continued to climb reaching 108 students currently, with seven teachers plus a resource teacher for the kindergarten through eighth grade students. The school was built to accommodate the youth of the parish as well as parish events. The parish center will also be rented out for community func- tions, such as wedding recep- tions, craft shows, breakfasts, and Christmas parties. Details on renting out the parish center can be found at the parish website www.stan thonysullivan.com or by calling the booking manager at 573- 468-8671. Dedication ceremonies will begin at 2 p.m. on Feb. 8 in the church with a short prayer service, then a procession to the new school for an outside solemn blessing and commemo- rative balloon release. Following additional bless- ings inside, all will gather in the gym for a short celebration followed by song, refreshments and tours. Everyone in the local area is invited to attend, encouraged to tour the facilities and meet Father Ted and Bishop Hermann. The St. Anthony Parish records date back to 1850 when a parish mission was operated in the Sullivan area. In 1862, a small church was built and the first resident priest added in 1883. In 1891, the church was relo- cated. While a school was run from the church grounds from the early 1900's, the brick stone school was built in 1943. The current church was com- pleted in 1964. Father Theodore Brunnert was named pastor of St. Anthony in June of 1989. We Find West Bros.

The project was bid in 2002 and Hogan Construction of Rolla was selected as the prime contractor. Construction start- ed in 2003 shortly after the Dec. 28, 2002 groundbreaking and was completed in two phases beginning in Nov. of 2003, when the students made the switch to the new building. The old stone school is cur- rently being used as a resource center for such activities as art, science algebra, and band and in the future may also be used as a preschool for three and four year olds.
