St. Anthony Church, the oldest Catholic church in Broward County, was dedicated in 1921, when Fort Lauderdale had about 2,000 residents and 65 Catholic families lived in the area.
Until the recent gym renovation, the school’s basketball teams played in a space cooled by fans. St. Anthony School third grader Madison Murray, 8, said she loves the new covered walkways at her school. Many of St. Anthony School’s 470 students, faculty and staff gathered in the gym and along the walkways for the Jan. 25 dedication ceremony.
