Happy 150th birth­day St. Ge­orge’s

Stanstead Journal - - STANSTEAD JOURNAL - Ge­orgeville

St. Ge­orge’s Angli­can Church, Ge­orgeville, will be 150 years old this Au­gust. This beau­ti­ful his­toric church is rec­og­nized for its ar­chi­tec­tural and his­toric dis­tinc­tion as well as its vi­tal con­tri­bu­tion to the unique char­ac­ter of our vil­lage and, fol­low­ing 150 years of con­tin­u­ous ser­vice to the com­mu­nity, it was show­ing signs of fa­tigue! On the oc­ca­sion of this 150th an­niver­sary, the Que­bec Re­li­gious Her­itage Foun­da­tion funded by the Min­istère de la Cul­ture et des Com­mu­ni­ca­tions re­sponded to our re­quest for help to re­store the build­ing. With the sup­port of our gen­er­ous donors and the Que­bec Gov­ern­ment, we are now able to leave our beau­ti­ful church in good shape for our con­gre­ga­tions for many years to come.

To cel­e­brate this an­niver­sary and the ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tion just com­pleted, there will be a ser­vice of thanks­giv­ing at 10am on Sun­day, Au­gust 28th, fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion in the Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion Hall. The Most Rev­er­ent Fred Holtz, the Pri­mate of the Angli­can Church of Canada, will be the cel­e­brant and preacher. The mu­sic will be led by Sarah Hoblyn at the or­gan with 20 mem­bers of the Ge­orgeville Oc­ca­sional Choir and the an­them dur­ing the of­fer­tory will be the (ap­pro­pri­ate) Old Time Re­li­gious Med­ley by Mark Hayes.

All are wel­come to this ser­vice and re­cep­tion. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, call John Hoblyn 819 843 0886, trevecca@ax­ion.ca
