Happy 150th birthday St. George’s
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, firstname.lastname@example.org
