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.

Lenten Series - Sessions One: Mission

During the week of March 8, we look at our first key theme, Mission, and relate it to the alternate Sunday Gospel for the Third Week of Lent, the story of the woman at the well (John 4:5-42). In this week’s video, Archbishop Mancini interviews Fr. James Mallon, pastor of Saint Benedict Parish in Halifax, the Founder and Chair of the Board of the JP II Media Institute, author of Divine Renovation, and a well-known speaker on parish renewal and the New Evangelization. Archbishop Mancini and Fr. James discuss what our mission actually is, and why it is central to who we are as individuals and as a Church. They also look at how this mission can be better lived out in our parishes and how it can (and should) affect our activities and pastoral planning.
