Parish History

St Peter & St Paul's was originally founded as St George's in 1885 and has met at the corner of Metcalfe and Gloucester ever since. A rich history of faithful Gospel ministry to the downtown of Canada's National Capital culminated in the historic decision in 2008 to join the Anglican Network in Canada in order to continue faithfully within the Anglican tradition. Though the parish stayed much the same, a name change was required, and as has been often said by parishioners, "we traded in one saint, and got two in return." The parish joyfully continues in a 2000 year old mission to disciple a people to bless the world.
