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.

Consecration to Mary: We will be starting a journey in preparation for Marian Consecration and follow Fr. Michael Gaitley’s book 33 Days to Morning Glory. It is a do-it-yourself retreat that takes 33 days and follows the teachings on consecrating our lives to Mary ~ from Saints Louis de Montfort, Maximilian Kolbe, Mother Teresa, and John Paul II. At the end of this journey, all those who participate will consecrate their lives to Mary and give as much permission to our Blessed Mother to form us into the image of Christ.
