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.

Archdiocese Information:

Invitation to Lenten Series from Archbishop Mancini: This Lent, Archbishop Mancini invites you to a three part study series to break open the content of his 2014 Pastoral Letter, “Lord, Where Are You Going?” and specifically consider our three key themes: Mission, Community, and Formation. Each session includes a short video with Archbishop Mancini and a local thought leader discussing the theme, a time of prayer and gospel reflection, guided small group discussion, and an individual discernment survey to help capture the fruits of the discussion and discernment that took place. As our Archdiocese moves forward in our year of pastoral discernment, this is a key way for all our lay faithful to have their voices heard in this discernment process and contribute to your parish’s pastoral plan. Please visit to watch the video series.
