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.

Feast of St. Anthony: Mark your calendar ~ Wednesday, June 13th, 7:00pm Mass. Everyone is encouraged to celebrate and give thanks to our Patron Saint Anthony of Padua.

St. Anthony served and loved those in the greatest need on earth, leaving us this great example of recognizing Christ in our brothers and sisters who suffer in poverty.
