Welcome Mary!

Greetings, St. Anthony of Padua Parish! Thank you for being so gracious in welcoming me as your new Parish Secretary. It will be impossible to replace Jill, but with your help, I can do my best! As we get to know each other, I thought a little background info on me would help all of you get to know me better. My husband, John, and I have been married for over 30 years and we have three beautiful children; Christopher, Katlyn and John Joe. (John Joe and Kate are twins.) We began our family in Petaluma, but moved to San Francisco so that our children could attend St. Ignatius College Prep which was where John worked for close to 20 years. Now that the children are graduated from college and on their own, we decided to move back to our sweet Petaluma and enjoy life as empty nesters. We are parishioner’s of St. James Catholic Church in Petaluma, with Fr. Michael Culligan at the helm. He was our priest when we first moved to Petaluma and are so thankful he is still at St. James. Both my husband and I now look forward to getting to know St. Anthony. We plan on participating as much as we can here too! Blessings during this Lenten season~ Mary Murphy
