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: 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

To the clergy and faithful,

At the request of the Holy Father Pope Francis, we have been celebrating the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy which began last year on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and will come to a close on the Solemnity of Christ the King.

I will officially close this Jubilee Year in our local church November 20th, at the 10:30am Sunday Eucharist at Saint Mary’s Cathedral Basilica.

I cordially invite all the faithful who are able to attend this celebration as we give thanks for all the graces our Lord has bestowed upon us.
— †Anthony Mancini, Archbishop of Halifax-Yarmouth

DVD Series: Tuesday, November 15th ~ 6:30pm-8:00pm. We will gather in the church hall for coffee and then a video followed by small group discussion. The video presented is part two of St. Thomas Aquinas ~ The Theologian: The relationship of faith and reason is under intense scrutiny in an age beholden to the competing claims of fundamentalism and secularism. So called “new atheists” insist that the claims of religion amount to mere superstition, a retrograde holdover from a time long ago. Others insist that the life of faith is a retreat into emotions and subjectivism. St. Thomas Aquinas anticipated these objections and trends and demonstrated that to believe is to think and that the life of the mind is integral to life in Christ.
