St. Anthony's Church

St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church & St. Faustina Kowalska 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.

Anima Christi
Soul of Christ, sanctify me;
Body of Christ, save me; 
Blood of Christ, inebriate me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me; 
Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus hear me; 
Within your wounds hide me; separated from you, let me never be; 
From the evil one protect me; At the hour of my death, call me; 
And close to you bid me; That with your saints, 
I may be praising you forever and ever.
