The Shrine Church of Saint Anthony of Padua on West Houston and Sullivan Streets in the South Village stands proudly as the first Italian parish in New York State, the second Italian parish founded in the United States, the oldest existing Italian parish in the U.S. and the first parish church building built by Italian immigrants in the United States. Saint Anthony's has been popularly called "The Italian Cathedral" and has appeared in movies such as “The Pope of Greenwich Village,” “Godfather II,” and “Moonstruck.”

Father Joseph F. Lorenzo, O.F.M., Pastor, presented an evening of history and historic images and artifacts as we present the latest installment of our series “OMG! Churches and Synagogues of Greenwich Village.”
