Let's go to church!

St. George's Anglican Church


I have attended many concerts and special events in the wonderful auditorium of this old church. The pipe organ is magnificent.

From the church website:

The building is an undisputed masterpiece of Gothic Revival architecture. Here you will find beautiful stained glass windows and hear the sounds of both our magnificent Casavant pipe organ and our 36-bell carillon.


But more importantly, there are the people who worship here, who maintain the welcome to this church, and who try to serve God in their everyday lives. It is they who welcome you to this website, and hope that you, whether as tourist, pilgrim or worshipper, will be able physically to visit our church.

I just thought that this wonderful opera singer, Jerome Hines, singing two hymns, goes along with our picture today.

Pipe Organs are the greatest and in a splendid setting there. A bridge was one of your topics, maybe you've caught my obsession! I had trouble reaching your site - from this end.
