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.

My Guardian Dear

Matthew 18:10: ‘Take care that you do not despise one of these little ones; for, I tell you, in heaven their angels continually see the face of my Father in heaven.’

But I’m no longer a child. Does an angel still guard me?

Padre Pio’s assurance: ‘Well, then, let me tell you that your guardian angel is still powerful against Satan and his satellites. Your angel’s love has not lessened now that you are an adult, and he can never fail to defend you. The fact that we have close to us an angelic spirit who never leaves us for an instant must really fill us with consolation, especially in our more dreary moments.’

‘When it seems to you that you are alone and abandoned, don’t complain that you are without a friend to whom you can open your heart and confide your woes. For goodness sake, don’t forget this invisible companion who is always there to listen to you, always ready to console you.’

‘If all people could only understand and appreciate the great gift which God in His exceeding love has given us by appointing this heavenly spirit to guide us.’

Lord, thank You for the consolation, companionship, and protection you provide me through my guardian angel. Help me to love him as you will. Amen.

-Padre Pio
