St. John’s Fundraiser
St. John's has teamed up with Plantables.ca for their next fundraiser. You can order your plants online and each order made on their website = 10% back for the church.
Easy peasy and COVID friendly. All ordering is done online and the plants are delivered directly to you. Better yet, they are organic.

St. Peter’s Memorial Wall
George Leggett, our church historian, has sent a link to the Memorial Wall at St. Peter's, which contains information regarding the sacrifices of those who were part of Canada's Forces and who lost their lives so we could be free. There is also a tribute to the men of St. Peter's, who were part of St. Peter's Church and lost their lives in the battles.
Thank you George for all your hard work putting it together, and to Dawn, his wife who put together the pictures of the chamber, pages from the book of Memorial and the pictures of the Veterans.
