Deanery of Oxford, Ontario
Old St. Paul's Anglican, Woodstock, Ontario
The Deanery of Oxford consists of 14 churches in southwestern Ontario. Woodstock with a population of 35,480 is the largest city in the deanery. The regional dean for Oxford is Rev Bruce Genge, rector of Old St. Paul's Church, Woodstock, Ontario (right).

Each year in June, there is a Founder's Day Service at Old St. Paul's. It is a memorial celebration to keep in mind all the pioneers who contributed to Woodstock and the Church.

The service is attended by the Mayor; federal MP; provincial MPP; the Oxford Naval Veterans Association; St. John Ambulance Cadets; Admiral Vansittart Chapter of the IODE; and others. Shown below is "Placing the Anchor" at the Vansittart tomb. Admiral Henry Vansittart founded Woodstock and died in 1843 after falling off his horse.
