History

The mission parish of Shanty Bay was founded in 1830 by Lt.-Col. Edward O’Brien and his wife, Mary. Lt.-Col. O'Brien, leading member of the Shanty Bay settlement, donated the church site and clergyman's residence, and directed the construction of the church.

A beloved production returns.

The moving love story between Mary Sophia Gapper and Edward O'Brien is back with performances across Simcoe County in September 2022.

First presented in 2018, Mary of Shanty Bay is based on the real-life diaries of Mary, who comes to Canada from England in 1828.

What starts off as a short visit soon becomes a lifelong adventure, with Mary and her husband building a home on the edge of a new world and struggling for survival.

 

Does Mary possess the resilience and resourcefulness to rise to the occasion? 

Tickets to the Gala Event on Sept. 24th are available for purchase here

The total price of $107 includes both the performance and the gala event hosted by St. Thomas Church.

Please note: $65 that goes to fundraising is eligible for a

tax receipt upon request.

Land Acknowledgement

The land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Odawa (oh-da-wah), and Anishinabek (ah-nish-nah-bek) Nations. It is the subject of Treaty 16 of the Upper Canada Treaties, also known as the Lake Simcoe Purchase of 1815. We recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples connected to and on this land. We are grateful for the opportunity to gather on this territory and work in this community, and we commit ourselves to the work of reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.
