St. Peter's Send Hope to the Community
St. Peter's recently had some new signs put out to let the community know they are sending messages of hope. Thanks to Ann Pool, who designed and made the signs and Lavender Floral in Stroud for making a beautiful display in our spring planter, we have let people know we are thinking of them and look forward to the day we can all meet together again on Sundays in our church. In the meantime, we wish you all to be safe, well and healthy.

Bishop Andrew Asbil presided over the service. We are very proud of Myrlene's accomplishments and she certainly deserved to win this prestigious honour. Congratulations Myrlene!

Cemetery By-Laws (St. Peter’s Cemetery Board)
Two historical documents were dedicated at St. Peter's Anglican Church. The first is a three-ringed binder of census, births, marriages and death information about the Reverend Canon Morgan and his family. He planted nine Anglican churches in the Barrie area, St. Peter’s being one of them. The second is a three-ringed binder of census, births, marriages and death records for all the clergy who have served at St. Peters from 1856 to the present day. The binders are presented in gratitude for all the years of selfless service to the Anglican Church. The two binders were researched and presented to the archives by George Leggett, who worked endless hours compiling the information. These are available for viewing in the Parish hall.
