Our Lady of Mount Carmel Roman Catholic Church - Chiesa Della Signora Del Monte Carmelo 549 Cathcart Street
Sault Ste. Marie
Ontario
District of Algoma
Canada
image002.jpg
image001.jpg
One of 3 churches located in the west end of Sault Ste. Marie, the church was dedicated 17 October 1910. Originally Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, it was officially renamed Our Lady of Mount Carmel in 1936.

Home to many of Italian heritage the church conducted masses in both English and Italian languages. Our Lady of Mount Carmel was located in close proximity to major industrial sites, Algoma Steel, Algoma Central Railway yards, the pulp and paper mill and a chromium plant. The area surrounding these industries offered homes within walking distance and was particularly attractive to immigrants from South and East Europe. Our Lady of Mount Carmel opened its doors to all who practiced the Roman Catholic faith including my Croatian immigrant family.

The Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie closed Our Lady of Mount Carmel on the 100th anniversary of its' inception, October 2010.

Blessed Sacrament Roman Catholic Church Cathcart Street

Canada
Blessed_Sacrament_001.jpg
Blessed Sacrament Roman Catholic Church, Cathcart Street, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The parish was closed in 2010 as a result of the consolidation of parishes directed by the Diocese of Algoma. The church was then sold to a local funeral home and serves as a memorial chapel for that business.

With strong Irish and Scottish presence, the Church located in the west end of the city also welcomed many immigrant families. It was the home parish of our Croatian immigrant family beginning in the 1930’s until the building of Our Lady of the Highways Croatian language church in the early 1960’s.

My father has fond memories of the parish priest, Father Fawcett, who served Blessed Sacrament community from 1924 to 1937. He and a Scottish immigrant neighbour would share stories of Scotland while enjoying my grandparents homemade wine and cheese.

Early History of Christ Church, Parish of Huntley prepared by Suzanne Thompson

In 1818 John Cavanagh and William Mooney left Tipperary County, Ireland and sailed across the mighty Atlantic on a long voyage of 13 weeks in primitive wooden ships to arrive in Quebec, Canada. From there they made their way to the heavily forested third line of Huntley and settled on Lot 11, Concession 2. Later on, Mr. Mooney left for Hull, Quebec to find work. .

John Cavanagh felled the first tree of Huntley township. He lived in a dugout in the ground, covered with trees, until he had built a shanty. He was Huntley’s very first settler. Gradually other hardy settlers joined him here.

In 1838 John Cavanagh deeded 5 chains 17 links (approx 1 acre) of his farm land to the Bishop of Quebec for an English Church to be built. Included in the deed was the stipulation that “the above John Cavanagh was to have pew No. 1 on the south side of the said church.” Today this pew is still used by the Cavanagh family.

A meeting was held at the home of Arthur Hopper, who owned the first store in Huntley Township. Mr. Hopper also had the first mail Facility, which was a courier once a week on horseback or horse and sleigh. He lived across the corner from where Christ Church stands today on Lot 10, Con.2. At this meeting it was decided that the stone Church would be built and it would be 50 ft x 30 ft x19 ft high. Mr. A. Thomas Christie was given the contract. Christ Church was completed in Nov. 1838. The stone was supplied by W. B. Bradley and came from nearby Bradley’s Creek just 2 miles away. The 3 foot thick stone walls have certainly stood the test of time. The first schoolhouse next door was actually built before the Church.

On Easter Monday 1839 the first Vestry Meeting was held in Huntley Parish. It was decided to have the burial ground laid out by a surveyor (up to that time graves had been placed in a haphazard way) and to have a log fence built around the burial ground and Christ Church. A cemetery lot cost half a dollar. Pews were to be rented for 10 shillings a year in the centre of the Church, increasing by 6 pence for each pew forward to the front and decreasing by 6 pence toward the back.

The first resident Rector, Rev. James Godfrey, came in 1853 and he lived in the Rectory which was just one-half mile south of the Church.

In the Great Fire of 1870 that Rectory was burned to the ground, as was the wooden fence that surrounded Christ Church, but the Church itself was not damaged. In that terrible fire more than half of the congregation lost homes, buildings and crops. 2 years later the Rectory was rebuilt in the village of Carp in the middle of the Fairgrounds of today.
In 1938 Christ Church celebrated its 100th anniversary. The stone cairn was built in front of the church to commemorate this event, and it was dedicated to honour the memories of the pioneer men and women of the district and the Parish who founded Christ Church.

Services were held for a congregation at Fitzroy 9th Line from 1867 and there was a church building by 1876 located across the street where the cemetery now exists. The current stone St. Paul's Anglican Church was built around 1888 and consecrated on 4 July 1896. It was renovated in 1912 and again in 1949. In 1985 St Paul's, 9th Line (now Diamondview) was closed and was removed from the Synod listings in 1988. Recently the building was entirely renovated and turned into a private residence.

Located in Cornwall's Original Mile Square, St. Columban is the "mother church" of Cornwall R.C. churches, pre-dating the diocese (Alexandria, renamed Alexandria-Cornwall) and pre-dating Confederation. The parish outgrew the 1829 and 1864 churches, replacing them with the current 1896 church on the same site. The first parish cemetery is immediately east of the church and the second cemetery is on 11th Street West.

THE BLUE CHURCH On January 1, 1790, inhabitants of Augusta and Elizabethtown townships agreed to build a church here in the "burying yard" of the proposed town of "New Aswegatchie". Subscriptions were inadequate and nothing was built by 1804 when Barbara Heck, the founder of Methodism in Upper Canada, was buried here. In 1809 Anglicans of Augusta and Elizabethtown built a frame chapel, later called the "Blue Church", which served the parish until St. James, Maitland, was opened in 1826. The "Blue Church", unconsecrated, rarely used for services and in bad repair, was partially burned and taken down in 1840. The present small blue church was built in 1845. Erected by the Archaeological and Historic Sites Board, Department of Public Records and Archives of Ontario.

The church was originally on land donated by Wm Smith Armstrong, my great grandfather. At the time I believe it was a Congregational Church but much later merged with United Church. Apparently years ago there was a difference of opinion within the Barrie Hill congregation and some of the Armstrongs decided to organize their own church congregation. There is plenty of information on the web regarding the hexagon shape and its origins. My grandparents Alex Barrie Cooper and Lucy Emily Armstrong married in this church in July 1900. I would love to know who the people are in the photo and likely they are Armstrongs and Peters. Contributed by Ian Cooper

Garden Hill United Church is the direct descendant of Perrytown Presbyterian, built c1838 on lot 15 in concession 6, just west of the present St. Paul's Anglican Church, and replaced with a new church with a seating capacity of 400 in 1851.
When Thomas Albert Gray died in 1877, he left a good part of the money needed for the construction of a new brick church. The congregation decided to build the new church in Garden Hill, so in 1879, when the new church was completed, the congregation moved from Perrytown to Garden Hill and the church became the Garden Hill Presbyterian Church. In 1925, when the Methodist and Presbyterian Churches in Canada joined to form the United Church, the church was renamed again as the Garden Hill United Church.
With the c2012 amalgamation with Canton and Welcome, the church was sold. It currently houses a bakery appropriately called "Heavenly Treats".

From Catherine Milne's & Donna McGillis', "The Early History and Founding of Bewdley, Ontario", 1990:
ST. ANNE'S ANGLICAN CHURCH, located on Pine Street in Bewdley, has no connection with the cemetery that lies to the south of it. According to the late BOB HANCOCK, once a lay reader at St. Anne's, the building was originally a chicken barn that had been moved from a farm south of Bewdley around the turn of the century. It was renovated with donated materials into a church building by volunteer labour and a stone fixed in the gable which still reads; Bewdley Church /Open to all Protestant denominations/1901. Thomas B. Chalk, a wealthy and prominent resident and mayor for several terms at Port Hope, owned a great deal of property in the Bewdley area. He allowed the Bewdley residents to erect the church on two of his lots. Ministers of various Protestant denominations took turns holding services there until the early 1920s when it remained vacant for several years. During the incumbency of the Rev. J. M. Crissal, rector from 1925-28 at St. George's Anglican Church, Gore's Landing, the Bewdley church building was acquired by the Anglican Synod and named St. Anne's. The Synod purchased the land from Chalk for the sum of $1.00 with the provision that it would return to the Chalk family if there ever ceased to be a church on the property. St. Anne's Anglican Church was designated a historic building in 1988 by the Heritage Branch of the Ontario Government on the recommendation of Hamilton Township L.A.C.A.C., and continues to hold weekly services. (It is now a private residence.)

Taken from www.ontarioabandonedplaces.com:

During the winter of 1860-'61, the people of Starkville district circulated a subscription to build a Wesleyan Methodist church, to be built on land donated by Thomas Ray for the sum of $600. After some discussion, the name "Shiloh" was chosen. The building was erected in 1861 and dedicated 15 June 1862. It was some years before there was either an organ or choir.

Shiloh became part of the Newtonville circuit about 1874. In 1895, the church was remodelled under the guidance of Rev. Wesley Down. In 1914, the church was raised and a basement was put under it.

It celebrated its jubilee anniversary in 1922 and is still active.

(Taken from Harold Reeves' "History of the Township of Hope" 1967)

John Hicks Eymon received the appointment as Missionary of the Bible Christians, arriving from England with his wife in the summer of 1833. He was stationed at Cobourg, where he wrote:
"In the early winter of 1833, I was invited to preach at what was called the Log School House, in the western part of the Township of Hope. This was the commencement of the society now known as Zion. The first protracted service that I held in Canada was at the log school house. At the close of the meeting it was agreed to build a Chapel."

The first Chapel was framed and erected in 1839 on land deeded by Samuel Naylor. The first, second, third, and fifth District meetings were held in the Zion Chapel.

Minister William Hooper, in a letter dated 09 Nov 1858, wrote:
"A week from next Sabbath (God willing) we intend to open a very neat new Chapel at Zion in this circuit. It is about thirty-two feet by forty-two feet, with a good basement for Sunday School purposes. It will cost 500 pounds and will be the fifth good, substantial brick Chapel in the Circuit."
(The church is now a private residence.)

Evangelist preachers of the Disciples of Christ came to Grey County in the 1840s to establish congregations in Kilsyth, Owen Sound, and Meaford. The Disciples believed in the authority of the New Testament and adult baptism by immersion. Alexander Fleming and his wife Jean were founding members of the Kilsyth church. Alexander gave the land for the first log church in 1858, and the Fleming family contributed to the brick church built in 1880. Many of the Fleming children and their children were baptized here and married. There was a small but active congregation until 1935 when services were discontinued. Alexander’s grandson Albert E. Fleming converted the building to a house where he lived until his death in 1956. The house continues to be occupied.

The followers of the Disciples of Christ were among the first to build a church in Owen Sound in 1844. Among the members were the families of W.A. Stephens, A. M. Stephens, John Doyle , W.C. Boyd ,all of whom were early settlers who became prominent businessmen. Their log church (location not known) was replaced by a brick building (467 Tenth Street East) in 1854, and that in turn by a handsome stone building opened for service in 1889 [see photo]. Christopher A. Fleming , educator and businessman, was an active and influential member in the Owen Sound church and the larger Co-operative of Disciples congregations in Ontario through to his death in 1945. Some of the pastors and evangelists he recognized in his history of the church were C.J. Lister, James Lediard, W.J. Cadman, J.P. McLeod. The church was dissolved 30 December 1956 and the building sold to the Church of the Nazarene, an Evangelical Christian denomination which continues to hold its services there.

Secessions resulted in the formation of St. Andrew's (1858-1872; demolished), and the Mill Street church (1963-1912; moved south in 1910 and now the Navy cadet building).
In addition, the Free Presbyterian Church on Toronto Road is active. It is home to the Scriven Christian Academy, a private school, founded 1978.

From the Church web site:
"In 1867 the work of erecting the Port Hope First Baptist Church was begun, much to the joy of the Baptist congregation - the earliest record of the existence of Baptists in the town was 1855. Mayor William Craig spoke for some time about building a new chapel and had bought a new site for $800.00 which he gave to the church. The financing for the building was based on the principal of freewill offerings - gifts from eighteen subscribers which amounted $875.00."
In 1894 an addition was added to the east end, providing classrooms in the basement and vestries above.

St-Marks.JPG
The two-year construction of St. Mark's (originally St. John the Evangelist) began in 1822 on land donated by John David Smith. The bell, still in use, was donated by Jonathan Walton in 1826. With an 1842 enlargement and 1851 alterations to windows and tower, the church approached it present size, form, and Gothic appearance.
In 1869, a new St. John's was opened on Pine Street. The old church was reopened in 1873 and rededicated to St. Mark. It is said to be the smallest and oldest frame church still in regular use in Canada.
Our first Canadian-born Governor-General, Vincent Massey, is buried in the adjoining churchyard.

Bible-Christian-2018.JPG
Little is known of this church. The land was purchased by the trustees of the church from Charles Cameron in 1867, with the church being built in 1870, according to the 2008 tax assessment rolls. A further portion of land was purchased in 1885 by Rev. John Bredin.
The land registry records are confusing, but the church was still in operation in 1885, and may have been sold by the Trustees to John Wallace in 1887. It has been a private residence for many years.

This church was the replacement of the original 1822 church on King Street. As early as 1855, consideration was being given to a new and larger church to be built on the west side of town. In February 1865, it was decided to build the new church, in the then-popular Gothic Revival style, on the corner of Pine and South streets. Construction began in 1867 and was completed in 1869.
Following that, the original church on King Street reopened, dedicated as St. Mark's.

Taken from information provided by the church…
Rev. Lloyd Sider, pastor of Colbourne United Missionary Church, held the first service at Port Hope, on 23 June 1940 at 16 John Street. This chapel, called Bethany Chapel, was run by City Mission Workers - ladies sent in pairs by the District to establish new ventures in different areas.
Following a move to the corner of Queen and Walton, the decision to build a church resulted in the United Missionary Church on Ward Street, dedicated 15 May 1949. In the early ‘70s, the name was changed to Grace Missionary Church.
In 1988, plans were laid for the new present church on Cavan Street. The Ward Street church is now a daycare.

From the Church website…
In 1948, a small group began meeting at the Orange Hall on John Street. The first church proper was opened on Mill Street in June 1950.
In 1968, that building was sold and a house/church on Wellington Street was dedicated in 1969. A few years later, a parsonage was purchased on Highland Drive.
As the congregation grew, plans were made to relocate to larger facilities, and dedication services were held in the Toronto Road building in January 1986.
In November 2006, the church site was relocated to its present location in a former bingo hall on Croft Street.

The headstone is that of my 3x great grandparents, located in the adjoining cemetery...St James/Barber Cemetery. They gave the Dioceses a deed for 3/4 acre of land to build the church in 1851. I am presently doing more research in order to write a short book on the History of this church/cemetery. The church was active from the late 1850's to the 1920's when it was destroyed, however the cemetery is still intact.

"After holding church services in various houses in the community, James (Jacobus) and Elizabeth Peack (Peck, Peeck) gave the gift of land in the early 1800's to be used as a church, school and burying ground. The first church was built in Albury in 1850 as an interdenominational church. It was a gray stone building with a low roof pitch. It had three Gothic windows on each side and one on either side of the front door. The stone church was built to the east of the present building. Unfortunately, the sandy soil which made it easy for interring the dead, provided poor foundation for the building. Shifting sand under the building made it unsafe; it was condemned and torn down in the spring of 1898. Upon its demolition the construction a new church was started immediately. In 1898, the present Church was built and dedicated following Methodist traditions, which were strong in Prince Edward County. Source: http://www.reach.net/~vrose/"

This Methodist Episcopal Church in Domville was constructed in 1876 on the corner of the Fourth Concession and County Road 18. In 1925 the Methodist Church and most Presbyterian Churches merged to form the United Church of Canada. This church was called the Domville United Church after that. The church is a light brown brick structure with Gothic style windows. At a later time, a recreation hall was attached to the back of the church for Sunday school services and church dinners. In the early 1970s this church closed for a period of time as it was not financially feasible for it to remain open; by 1973 it was purchased by a Greek Orthodox Bishop who converted the church into a Greek Orthodox church. The bishop intended on turning the building into living quarters for nuns, however the building did not meet the township's requirements to be used for this purpose. The church is still standing however it is rarely used. (Wikipedia). The inscribed stone above the front door reads: M. E. Church. Erected 1976.
