Pointe-Claire's Anglican Church of Saint John the Baptist to celebrate its 100th birthday.
The Anglican Church of Saint John the Baptist in Pointe-Claire is celebrating its 100th anniversary with an open house and commemorative service. The celebration will take place on June 24th and 25th.
The church doors will open from 2:30 until 5 pm on Saturday, June 24th, to welcome the community and local council representatives. Exhibits will showcase the general history of Pointe-Claire, including its transformation from a rural farming community to a suburban area of Montreal. Visitors will also discover the church's role in expanding the diocese in the region and its connection to significant events such as the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
Other displays will highlight past clergy, various parish activities, and the rebuilding of the church after an electrical fire in 1992. This is an opportunity to learn about the church's rich history and its contributions to the surrounding areas. The Women's Guild will provide an afternoon tea from 3 pm to 5 pm.
On Sunday, June 25th, at 10 am, a special church service of celebration and thanksgiving will take place. Bishop Mary Irwin-Gibson will officiate the service, and the choral singers, led by Music Director Olivier Lavoie-Gagne, will provide uplifting music.
