St. Anthony of Padua is one of the Catholic Church’s most popular saints. St. Anthony of Padua, patron saint of lost and stolen articles, was a powerful Franciscan preacher and teacher. He’s typically portrayed holding the child Jesus—or a lily—or a book—or all three—in his arms. St. Anthony of Padua’s life is what every Christian’s life is meant to be; a steady courage to face the ups and downs of life, the call to love and forgive, to be concerned for the needs of others, to deal with crisis great and small, and to have our feet solidly on the ground of total trusting love and dependence on God. St. Anthony is beloved throughout the world and is responsive to all people and all needs. His intercessory powers before our God are awesome.
″St. Antony’s Shrine, Uvari, is a Tuticorin Diocese Pilgrim Centre. It has been accepted that through the intercession of St. Antony, many get relief from their sickness and all kinds of bonages. may we honour more and more St. Antony of Padua in Uvari and receive God’s abundant blessings through his Powerful Intercession.″
″I take much pleasure in inviting all the devotees, readers, well-wishers to this graceful Shrine. May the powerful intercession of St.Antony of Padua remains with all of you in your sorrows and joys. I am very much pleased to invite you to this historical sacred sanctuary to pray and receive the blessings. Being the Parish Priest and the Rector of this Shrine, I welcome all of you to pay a visit and pray to God through the great St. Antony of Padua.″
I was taken to the Shrine of St Antony, Uvari, by my parents in the same way Jesus went to the Temple of God on His First Visitation. Since then, I have been ever indebted to him for all the graces and blessings I have received in my life from him!
முதுமை மிகு நிலப்பரப்பாம் தென்பாண்டி மண்டலத்தின்,
தெற்கு கடலோரம் ,
உவரியின் ஓயாத கடலடி ஓசையில் கோயில் கொண்டு வீற்றிருக்கும் எங்கள் அந்தோனி மாமுனிவன்.
எட்டு திக்கும் அவன் புகழ் பரவட்டும்.
The first saint I have seen in my life is St. Anthoniyar. He has been tremendous in our life with lots of blessings. Whenever we needed his help, he was with us. We THANK HIM for all the blessings he has showered on us. My Father Mr. Soosai Viyakulam is one of his devotee who has been visiting St. Anthoniyar\’s feast every year till now. Now he is sick and not able to attend this years feast. I pray to St. Anthoniyar that he would bless him and cure him as early as possible.
THANK YOU ST. ANTHONIYARE

A place to visit for your spiritual journey. It is one of the blessed places where many miracles testified. As it is present on the coast side, it has a very nice atmosphere with the divine aura of St. Anthony. Do visit the place for self awakening and peace of mind.
One should visit this church at least once in their life time. Very peaceful environment with positive vibrations.
There are much better reviews than mine, but I couldn’t resist to rate my own church, St. Anthony’s Church, being my Patron Saint. One of the oldest churches in Tirunelveli district. Whenever I enter into the church, my mind becomes peaceful than any other place in the world. Praying in front of St.Antony gives me all the confidence I can have and achieve greater.
