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.

Fr. Lloyd O’Neill: Let us thank our Lord for the time He gave us with Fr. Lloyd, a friend of God and a great friend of our community. The Lord gave us a true witness and gift of our Faith in Jesus Christ. Fr. Lloyd truly showed us the heart of Christ and the Face of the Father every moment he was with us. This is a great opportunity to motivate our heart to be more united with Christ and each other, and may Fr. Lloyd aid us with his prayers in the Heavenly Kingdom. May the Lord be praised! Your brother in Faith, Br. Nathanael.
