We visit St. Anthony's about once a year around the Italian Festival. There is a small admission fee to get into the festival, but it is worth it. There are rides, music, dancing, live bands, games, food vendors and more. We always visit the Torrone booth for some nougat candy. YUM. They have everything from hot dogs to real authentic... More

This was an Italian neighborhood where the Pastor did great things for the Parish of course with their support. From schools to the seniors to social clubs, They even built a park out in the Hockessin area which is beautiful called St. Anthony's in The Hills

St Anthony of Padua is a beautiful church. Its parishioners are friendly and welcoming. Their choir is magnificent. Although this is not my parish church, I have attended Mass at St Anthony often and I find the Mass with the homily very inspiring.

St. Anthony's is an old world masterpiece. The architecture is as full of character as are the parishoners. The events sponsored by the parish are full of love for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. St. Anthony's is a deeply spiritual place that opens its arms to the Wilmington community and spreads God's love by word and deed.

All stone and beautiful stained glass. Each June they have a terrific Italian Festival, in the blocks around the church, with all the Italian food you can think of and want. There is a... More

Loved the architecture of this church. We attended mass here since we had heard so much about it. Just loved walking around after mass to see all the altars...worth the trip
