The Parish of Marysburgh was officially established by Bishop J. Strachan, in the Diocese of Toronto, in 1850, and the first local priest, Rev. J. Tooke, arrived in 1851. Since then, the Anglican churches of St. Philip’s and St. John’s have served as spiritual homes to several generations in Milford, Waupoos, and Prince Edward County.
On August 24, 2022 St. John’s in Waupoos was deconsecrated. As you can imagine, this is a very difficult for the St. John’s congregation, at the same time it was very brave. Click on the St. John’s photo below for information and photos from the Service of Thanksgiving & Deconsecration.
