St. Anthony Church is the oldest Catholic church in the Kent area, built in 1904. It officially became a parish in 1906. The building is notable for its beautiful stained glass windows. They were made by the Povey Brothers, the Portland-based window makers who were called "Tiffanies of the West Coast" for the quality of their work. St. Anthony was in continual use as the primary church building until 1994, when a larger church building was built on the property to accommodate a growing parish. The parish was then renamed Holy Spirit Parish to eliminate confusion with St. Anthony Church in nearby Renton. The old church is now called St. Anthony Chapel because it is no longer the primary location for Mass. Weekend Masses are held in the new bigger church, but daily Mass and services with smaller attendance are still held in St. Anthony Chapel. It is open from 8AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday. Daily Mass during the week is at 9:00 AM. All are welcome to attend.
