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.

Grow in Love, expand that Love, practice Love, strengthen Love, and finally, be Love and merge in the illimitable Love, which is God.

Let us become visible to the entire world as charitable disciples of Christ.

We are to be reflectors of Christ’s Light to this dark world. We are to radiate Christ’s compassion to all we meet in the marketplace, job site, and in church. This is not a mere invitation. This is the command of Jesus that we demonstrate compassionate love to the very end of our lives.
