About Our Auction
With the ongoing Covid-19 situation and protocols, we are not able to hold our usual in-person events at St. Mary’s that those in our community have come to enjoy. With this auction, we can have some fun and come together for St Mary’s. Funds from this event will help St Mary’s with continued operations upkeep and provision of outreach programs for our community.
Thank you to the Friends of St. Mary's who generously donated auction items. Hope you enjoy the auction and are successful in your bidding. Feel free to invite your family and friends to join in on the fun!
If you would like to make a donation to St. Mary's, please contact us.
About St. Mary's Anglican Church
Nestled into a peaceful, forested setting on the north side of the 6th Line of March (“6th Line Road”), the present grey stone St Mary’s dates from 1909.
Our original church building was erected in 1829 on the south shore of the Ottawa River – a short distance away at historic Pinhey’s Point. That makes this church one of the very oldest and most historically significant Christian congregations in the entire Eastern Ontario/Ottawa Valley region.
When the stone walls of the original church building began to crumble in the early 1900s, the congregation back then decided to rebuild inland at today’s more central and convenient location – on what had quickly become the area’s main road.
Today’s St Mary’s draws its membership from both long-established pioneer and farming families – some of whose ancestors came to the March Township area 180 or more years ago – as well as from newer families who have moved out to this beautiful rural area from within the city in more recent times.
In its life, witness and worship, St Mary’s combines a deep respect for Anglican traditions and beliefs with a forward-looking outlook on the modern world around it, and welcomes all newcomers in Christian love.
Some are coming to refer to us as a “the Church of the out-of-doors” because many of our events have long been held outdoors, and we have also begun to hold a significant, and likely increasing, number of worship services outside – including our Easter Sunrise service, annual Blessing of the Animals – a St Francis of Assisi Service, and a Celtic Eucharist.
