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.

Industrial Dishwasher: Our hall kitchen dishwasher is no longer working and to replace the parts needed would be extremely expensive due to it being 30 years old. A new dishwasher is approximately $4,000. If you would like to donate monetarily, there are envelopes - marked Industrial Dishwasher - on the tables near both entrances. Please write your envelope #, name and amount to ensure it is included in your 2018 tax receipt. Every little bit helps and we greatly appreciate it.
