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 also have our hall available to rent. Please contact the office for further information.

Let us remember the victims tragically killed and wounded on 9/11.

‘O God of love, compassion and healing, look on us, people of many faiths and traditions who gather today at this site, the scene of incredible violence and pain.  We ask you in your goodness to give eternal light and peace to all who died here – the heroice first-responders: our fire fighters, police officers, emergency service workers, and Port Authority personnel, along with all the innocent men and women who were victims of this tragedy simply because their work or service brought them here on September 11, 2001.
God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world:  peace in the hearts of all men and women and peace among nations of the earth.  Turn to your way of love those whose hearts and minds are consumed with hatred.  God of understanding, overwhelmed by the magnitude of this tragedy, we seek your light and guidance as we confront such terrible events.  Grant that those whose lives were spared may live so that the lives lost here may not have been lost in vain.  Comfort and console us, strengthen us in hope, and give us the wisdom and courage to work tirelessly for a world where true peace and love reign among nations and in the hearts of all.’ 
Excerpt from Pope Benedict XI – Prayer at Ground Zero 

Let us also remember those who suffered death, injury and loss at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Bulletin: 23th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Lord God, the day of our salvation dawned when the Blessed Virgin gave birth to your Son. As we celebrate her nativity, grant us your grace and your peace, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thank you to everyone who gave donations for our much needed roof repairs. Our next necessary project is the replacement of the roof on the steeple and the painting of the Cross. This work is currently in progress and will cost $3,000. Through the intercession of Mary our Blessed Virgin Mother, may we find a way to help our parish and grow our wonderful community in the North End of Dartmouth. Your prayers and support help keep us active and spiritual in our parish community.

Have a wonderful Labour Day weekend!
