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: 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time

I would like to renew the invitation to consecrated persons to look to the future with confidence, relying on the fidelity of God and the power of His grace, Who is always able to accomplish new wonders: You have not only a glorious history
to remember and to recount, but also a great history still to be accomplished! Look to the future, where the Spirit is sending you in order to do even greater things.
— Pope John Paul II

The Presentation of the Lord: Jesus became human to win our salvation. In the old calendar of the Church, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord was the conclusion of the Christmas season, also known as Candlemas day. For us today, this feast falls in Ordinary Time and reveals another aspect of the mystery of the person of Jesus. God became flesh so that we could become divine.

The purpose of the day is to help the entire Church to esteem ever more greatly the witness of those persons who have chosen to follow Christ by means of the practice of the evangelical counsels as well as to be a suitable occasion for consecrated persons to renew their commitment and rekindle the fervour which should inspire their offering of themselves to the Lord.
