Patronage & Dedication

The Order of St. Anthony takes its name in honor of the “father of monasticism,” St. Anthony of Egypt, or St. Anthony the Great.  While not the first monastic,
St. Anthony the Great pioneered the concept of going to remote places to practice contemplation, worship God, and fight spiritual principalities and powers.


*Additionally, the Order is indebted to the life and work of †Bishop Tony (Anthony) Palmer of the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches. Bishop Palmer was instrumental in bringing together Roman Catholic and Evangelical Christians from around the world, most notably through his relationship with His Holiness, Pope Francis, and Pentecostal leaders.

O God, who by your Holy Spirit enabled your servant Anthony to imitate the ways of the Prophet Elijah and follow the straight path of John the Baptist, thereby resisting the cares and temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil: Give us grace, with pure hearts and minds, to strengthen the world by our prayers and actions, and to follow you, the only God; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
