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: 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Faith is the gift that we received on the day of our Baptism, that makes
us part of the Body of Christ, and in which we meet all those who, in
Christ, suffer, hope and serve for His Love. Faith is the strength and the
purity of our acting, deciding, serving and celebrating. Our parents brought us to the Font of Faith because they had found someone who loved us more than they did - God.

May the Lord give you peace, Br. Nathanael

Starting next week, at the entrances to the church, you will find gift bags with a list of suggested items inside. Please take a gift bag home with you, fill it, and deliver it back to the church on or before Thursday, December 18th. We hope for your generous support of this Advent project.
