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: 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Please accept my deepest gratitude for all who came in support and volunteered their time to help our Polish community in making the
Polish Festival a great success!
St. Anthony’s community responded with generosity, helping to bring everyone involved together as one big family. The Lord gave us many blessings beyond what we can imagine, and we know that He will continue to bless us throughout this year. May God give you peace.
— Br. Nathanael
