In the March Niagara Anglican, we published photographs from our archives, and asked readers to help identify the places or people. Here are the results.
Alexander (Sandy) L. Darling, Hamilton, emailed, “The Reverend David Blackwell was the long-time priest of St Luke’s Hamilton. He and his wife were beloved by campers at Canterbury Hills because of their long ministry at the camp. The Christmas family was from Hamilton, so it is safe to say that St. Luke’s was the Hamilton parish.
In a telephone conversation, Beryl Martin identified the adults at St. David’s sod turning ceremony as (left) Churchwarden John Turnbull, Rector Jo Fricker, Churchwarden Bill Mason and parishioner Jim Venables. Billy Mason, the churchwarden’s son, turned the sod to begin construction. Beryl, a long-time member of the parish, witnessed the special event. She also noted St. David’s Welland celebrates its 70th anniversary during 2019.
