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.

2016 Assembly of the People of God on May 13-14, 2016 at Saint Mary’s Cathedral Basilica: The Assembly is a conference, a pilgrimage, and a celebration of faith. This year we will explore the call from Pope Francis for every parish to become an “oasis of mercy”. As part of this event you will be able to join in a worldwide wave of mercy by passing through the “Door of Mercy” at the Cathedral. Additionally, the event falls on Pentecost—the birthday of the church—and you will have the chance to celebrate the great gift of the Holy Spirit. Visit:
