St. Anthony's Church

St. Anthony of Padua Parish & St. Faustina Kowlaska Polish Mission

Welcome to St. Anthony's Church.

The people of St. Anthony's Parish and St. Faustina Kowalska Polish Mission, part of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Halifax, are called to be "The People of God". Our faith in God's unconditional love for us, as evidenced in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and, as testified to by his church, gives us a firm hope in our salvation and the salvation of the world. We respond to God's love with adoration, thanksgiving, and petition through worship and prayer, and charity to our neighbour

We invite you to discover the richness of our parish. Newcomers and visitors are always welcome.

We also have our hall available to rent. Please contact the office for further information.

For information on events, please see our calendar.

More information about Committees and groups within the Church are to come.

Pastoral Council

In recognition of the workload of the Parish Priest to provide pastoral care, our Parish Pastoral Council is a group of parishioners who come together with the Parish Priest to share and to offer advice on planning the ongoing life and development of the parish community by: 

  1. Offering advice and assistance to the Parish Priest to provide pastoral care
  2. Fostering, encouraging and assisting the activities of Parish ministries
  3. Discerning the needs of the Parish Community
  4. Assisting with the vision and the agenda for the future direction of the Parish
  5. Provide opportunities for parishioners to grow their relationship with God and each other

Our vision is to:

  • Enrich and promote Christian values within the St Anthony’s faith community 
  • Encourage and develop the spirit of unity and understanding 
  • Empower the qualities and abilities of the faith community to provide assistance and service to the needs of our parish and the wider community.
