The Parish of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi was created by uniting the four faith communities in the North-West of Halifax. Together, inside our distinctive and historic churches, we worship as a welcoming and vibrant Christian community whose outreach is based in love and friendship.

All are welcome to visit our churches. During COVID, there is a registration process for Sunday Masses. To register, please visit the site of the church you wish to attend for more information.
