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.

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.
