In October 2006, the Diocese of Toledo began Padua Center. It is a membership-based organization located in the rectory of the former Saint Anthony of Padua Church on Nebraska Avenue. It is a visible presence in the neighborhood.
The mission of Padua Center is to be a Christian community-based presence empowering people at all stages of life to achieve their maximum potential through education, counseling, support and community involvement.
