The year 2022 marks the 185th anniversary of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Merrickville.
In 1837, after a decade without a church in Merrickville, Rev. Henry Patton, with the faithful Loyalist pioneer families of the Church of England, built Trinity. This small church was razed in 1908 and a larger church was constructed on the site. The opening service of the new Trinity (now Holy Trinity) was held on April 14, 1909.
On Sunday June 19, 2022, a special service will celebrate the 185-year story of the Anglican Church in Merrickville. Linking present to past, Bishop Michael Oulton of the Diocese of Ontario,, Rev. Andrew Wilson and the congregation of Holy Trinity will welcome former members and descendants of the pioneer families of the 19th and 20th centuries to Holy Trinity. We hope you will join us at 10:30am on Sunday June 19th for this special celebration, followed by a pot-luck lunch.
