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.

Into the Heart of God: Jean Vanier Explores the Gospel of John in the Holy Land

This work is an exploration into the Gospel of John. By retracing the actual steps through the Holy Land of the events and accounts of this gospel, Vanier recreates a vivid and intimate portrait of what is often called the “mystical gospel.”
This series looks deep into the gospel, and in so doing brings viewers further into the heart of God, whose boundless love for humanity manifests itself in the life and times of Jesus.

We will watch the first seven series this Spring, and the following 7 series in the Fall. We will start with a small meal together, then watch the video and have a short discussion with Q&A. I encourage you all to participate, if possible.
