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.

Equip the Saints Update from Archbishop Mancini:Inserted in the bulletin you will find a simple two page document that highlights the progress that has been made in Year 1 of our 2017-2020 diocesan pastoral plan. This plan is called Equip the Saints and its aim is to help accomplish the transformation and revitalization of our local church. During the past couple of weeks, Archbishop Mancini is asking parishes to share the Equip the Saints Update in an effort to keep all the faithful informed of our efforts to become New Parishes: Stronger together. Please take it home and read it over as there are important questions you may have that are answered in this document.
