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.

Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians: A Mass with a focus on Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians will be held at St. Peter Parish on Wednesday February, 13 at 7 pm. Through the centuries many Christians around the world have suffered and others have died as martyrs in defense of their faith. Thankfully, we live in a country where prejudice against Christians is on the low end of the scale when compared to what is endured at this time by many practicing the faith in some areas of the Middle East. The Mass starts at 7 pm, but all are welcome to come early and participate in a recitation of the Rosary (The Sorrowful Mysteries) from 6:30 to approximately 6:50 pm. This prayer service, preceding the Mass, will be led by Knights of Columbus members. There will be no noon Mass at St Peter Parish church on this day.

Orphans, they are our sons, and so in correcting their mistakes we must lay aside all anger and restrain it so firmly that it is extinguished entirely.
