History of St. Saviour's, Orono,
Compiled by Grace Haldenby
In 1969 the A.C. W. had an Easter salad supper. By 1973 there
were two sittings at 5.00 and 6.00 p.m., but it was again described
as the Easter tea. In May, Mary Morris retired after playing the
organ for 35 years without pay. The church had a pot luck supper
and card party in her honour, and presented her with a Prayer
Book and Hymn Book. Sunday School started in the fall with seven
pupils and a teenager, Rhonda Johnston, as teacher.
An anniversary service was held on the afternoon of November 2nd
in 1969 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the building. The
Rt. Rev. H.H. Marsh, retired Bishop of the Yukon now living in
Cobourg, was the special speaker.
It was reported in 1969 that St. Saviour’s had 35 families
and 19 individuals in the congregation. The average attendance
was 25 at morning services and 18 for evensong. There had been
30 communicants at Easter.
