Where to Go
ST. THOMAS MORE CHURCH
15 Caledonia Road, Dartmouth, NS
Our St. Thomas More location is just off Main Street in Dartmouth, across from the NSCC Akerley Campus.
We have two entrances to our parking lot. You can enter from Caledonia Road by driving up either of the criss-cross driveways, or you can turn onto Kuhn Drive from Main Street and enter at the back of the parking lot. Accessible parking spots can be found nearest to the access ramp to the left of the main doors.
ST. VINCENT DE PAUL CHURCH
320 Flying Cloud Drive, Dartmouth, NS
Accessible parking spots can be found in the front and center of the parking lot. The main entrance to the Church is in the center of the building, underneath the name “St. Vincent de Paul.”
What about my kids?
Jesus said, “Let the children come to me” (Mt 19.14). Children are welcome here! We welcome squirmy and loud kids as a gift from God.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is available during the school year at the 8:30 am Mass only. During the first portion of the Mass, children are invited to hear an age-appropriate proclamation of the Gospel story from that week and do a brief activity to help them understand the stories of Jesus. All children up to Grade 3 are invited, and no registration is necessary.
We also have faith formation classes for children in Grade Primary—Grade 9 during the school year, in both English and French. Contact us for more information or to register!
The safety and security of your children is our top priority. All our teachers are trained and have a background check before they can work with children.
Need to talk to someone about the Catholic faith? Contact the parish office. We’d be happy to hear from you.
Want to become Catholic? Contact us! Let’s discuss the process of formation and initiation into the Catholic Church, called The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).
