The Church of St. Anthony of Padua in Cody, Wyoming, is the largest parish area-wise in the lower 48 states, covering over 6,000 square miles – an area greater than the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined. The parish, which is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cheyenne, also serves the Mission Churches of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus in Meeteetse and Our Lady of the Valley in Clark as well as St. Francis of Assisi Summer Mission in Yellowstone National Park.

We hope this website will provide useful information for our parishioners as well as for those planning to visit our parish or attend summer services in Yellowstone National Park. If you do not find the information that you need, please call, write, or email us and we will be more than happy to help you.

Our Mission

Always in union with our Bishop and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, we, as disciples of Christ, realize that everything is a gift of God. We serve the people of God through Sacramental and Liturgical celebrations and on-going faith formation. As grateful disciples, we cultivate, nurture, and develop our gifts, expressed in spiritual and social events, enabling us to personally live the Gospel of Jesus as Catholic individuals and families in our communities.
