St. John's Anglican, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia is located 65 km (40 mi) southwest of Halifax. It was settled in the mid-18th century and is the center of Nova Scotia's fishing industry. It has Canada's oldest Presbyterian (St Andrew's 1754) and Lutheran (Zion's 1772) churches.

The original St John's was completed in 1763. After 80 years the circular tower was replaced with a square one and in 1870-75 was rebuilt yet again, taking the form in which it can still be seen today.

The 'carpenter gothic' style of the church is in perfect harmony with both its site and with the wooden houses that surround it, these houses themselves having been altered and ornamented in much the same way as St John's.

Among the clergy who have served there are Archbishop Fred Hiltz and Bishop Bruce Howe. The church suffered substantial damage as a result of a fire in the early hours of November 1, 2001. It took 4 years to restore the building. St. John's is open for guided tours daily between 11:00am and 7:00pm, except during services.

St Mark's by-the-Lake, Tecumseh, Ontario
Last month over 240 people attended the Mass of Rededication for
St Mark's by-the-Lake, Tecumseh, Ontario. Attending were a number of visitors from the business and building community, clergy from the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches as well as the Bishop of Huron.

The Church and Parish Hall had undergone an $800,000 expansion. The roof to the attached parish hall was raised adding a half-storey with 3400 sq ft of space and the church widened adding about 3600 sq ft.
