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.

Hall - Tower and Partial Roof Replacement: This week we have entered into a contract to have our hall roof replaced as the side facing the lower parking lot has many leaks and many shingles are blowing off. We will also do work on the tower.  We have saved throughout the summer $8,000 of the total cost of $11,000 we expect to pay.   We will be putting funds raised from Classic Country Show, flea market and luncheon directly to the remaining bill.  We appreciate any support on our fundraisers.  Many thanks ~ Finance Council
