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.

Bulletin: Palm Sunday

Let us remember on Holy Thursday especially, to thank Jesus for giving us the Eucharist and the Priesthood. Pope John Paul II wrote: ‘We were born from the Eucharist. If we can truly say that the whole Church lives from the Eucharist...we can say the same thing about the ministerial Priesthood: it is born, lives, works and bears fruit ‘de Eucharistia’. There can be no Eucharist without the Priesthood, just as there can be no Priesthood without the Eucharit.’ (Letter to Priest for Holy Thursday)
