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.

New Parishes ~ Stronger Together:The transition team met recently to continue to study the process and issues involved with this important project. We quickly came to the conclusion that communication among team members and with all members of our four parishes is vital if we wish to be successful in this venture. Our next meeting is on March 18th and the topic is: Communications. Please keep all involved in your prayers at this time. The prayer on the Equip the Saints Prayer Card is one form you may wish to use.

Lenten Mission with Fr. James Mallon: The Dartmouth Catholic Community is invited to come together for a Dartmouth-wide Lenten Mission with Fr. James Mallon, as we explore the mysteries of renewal and evangelization that underpin this process of Transition in our local Church. Monday, March 11, 7pm – St. Clement, 16 Gaston Road. Tuesday, March 12, 7pm – St. Vincent de Paul, 320 Flying Cloud Drive. Wednesday, March 13, 7pm – St. Peter, 10 Maple Street . Fr.

DVD Series: On The Mass ~ by Bishop Robert Barron, will be held during Lent on Saturdays at 3:15pm (before the 4:00pm Mass). I strongly encourage everyone to give time to learn more about the central mystery of our faith. If you have any questions, speak to me, Br. Nathanael.

Adoration: I encourage everyone to take advantage of Fr. Paul hearing Confession during Adoration Thursday evenings during Lent from 7:00pm-8:00pm. There will be no Adoration on March 21st – as there is a Polish Mission.

Polish Luncheon & Movie: Everyone is invited this Sunday, March 10th at 2:00pm, after the Mass in Polish, to watch the movie The Zookeeper’s Wife (translation in English).
