Blasts from the past – memories from the archives

For 64 years, the Niagara Anglican has been a meeting place where parishes, groups and the diocese can share the good news of God’s church.

We have selected five examples from our archives to illustrate significant happenings or milestones in the life of Niagara Diocese.

You may know more about these events than we do, so share any details you may have which can bring the past more fully alive for our readers. We would love to hear from you.

All photos from Niagara Anglican Archives.

Joining him were banjoist the Reverend David Blackwood, with guitarists Ann Christmas and Jane Christmas (sisters) from St. Luke’s parish (which St. Luke’s?) led the singing, including the hymn The Lord’s My Shepherd to the tune of The Happy Wanderer.
