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.

Advent Backpack Project: This year our parish will once again partner with four other Dartmouth parishes to fill bags of gifts for the patrons of Feeding Others of Dartmouth and other local charities. Our goal is to fill 400 gift bags with useful items for adult men and women who do not have the resources to provide for themselves. Near the main entrance 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.

Lottery Tickets: Please see Gordon at the main entrance of the church after Mass to buy your tickets. The first prize is a beautiful quilt. The draw will take place on December 14th at the Country Time Show at 7:00pm.

St. Joseph Sunday Missals 2015: Are available for $5 in the Sacristy.

St. Vincent de Paul Society: Item of the month for November is peanut butter. The donation box is located near the entrance. Thank you!

The spiritual life is realized when we are before God, and the journey takes us between ‘Am I My Brother’s Keeper?’ to‘Loving My Enemy.’ This will flow from the experience of God’s inexhaustible love and forgiveness.
