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: Feast of the Holy Familt

The first time Jesus enters the Temple of the Lord is 40 days after his birth, when his parents offers “a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons” on his behalf, which is the sacrifice of the poor.
Luke, whose Gospel is filled with a whole theology of the poor and poverty, makes it clear ... that Jesus’ family was counted among the poor of Israel; he helps us to understand that it was there among them where the fulfillment of God’s promise matured.
