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: 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

This is our last bulletin until our mid-summer one, August 11th. My last Masses will be the weekend of July 13 & 14.

I thank everyone at St. Anthony’s Parish and
St. Faustina’s Polish Mission for making the past 5 years a very happy and positive experience for me. I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation for all that you have done – not only for me – but for your parish & community.

This parish will always have a very special place in my heart, and I thank you for giving me the warmth and love of a very close family. As I take my leave of you as your Pastor, I thank each and every one of you for your friendship, your support and your encouragement.

May God’s Blessings shine upon you and St. Anthony’s Parish for years to come.
— Father Jan Grotkowski, SDS

Saturday, June 29th, we celebrate the Solemnity of St. Peter and St. Paul, Apostles.

We are to live as disciples of Christ.  God calls each of us to live lives of holiness.  Each day, this will require us to make decisions to follow Christ in a world filled with competing priorities and messages.  Let us ask St. Peter & Paul to help us always turn to God, Our Father for strength and love.
