The congregations of All Saints – Ridgeway, St. John’s Ridgemount, St. Paul’s Fort Erie and Trinity Fort Erie will celebrate a service of Holy Eucharist & Baptism at Old Fort Erie on Saturday June 26 – 10 a.m. Following the service and celebration we will break bread together and enjoy a potluck picnic.
This annual service is looked forward too by all and continues to grow in participation – especially helps when the weather is nice. All those who wish to attend and experience a multi-congregational service are welcome to attend just bring a chair or blanket to sit on and perhaps something to share at the table.
On Sunday June 19th a memorial service complete with canons, muskets, bag pipes, and trumpets will be held for Colonel Kerby! Among his many accomplishments Colonel Kerby became the town warden of Bertie Township in 1826 and later the first postmaster in the township. Instrumental in establishing St Paul’s Church (Anglican) in Waterloo, he remained a warden of the church until his death.
We along with the Second Lincoln Regiment re-enactors hope this memorial remains an annual event.
