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: 6th Sunday of Easter

Happy Mother’s Day!

Loving Father, You chose Mary to be the Mother of Your Son, and the spiritual mother of all Your children.
Bless these women, that they may be strengthened 

as Christian mothers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth. 
Grant that we, their sons and daughters, 
may honor them always with a spirit of profound respect.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
