Administrative history

“The first [St. Luke’s] was in the vicinity of the old cemetery nearer to the harbour. It was blown down in a June gale. An interesting note is that a cow that was seeking protection from the elements was killed in the collapse.

A Mr. Short was in charge of the building of the present edifice and some lumber, namely the wide hemlock boards from England, was salvaged from the old ruins. The present church was consecrated by Bishop Jones on November 13, 1892 when The Rev’d. William Weaver was rector of the parish. The service was at 10:30 a.m. and 54 people attended. The original roof was covered with Trinity Bay slate and the belfry stood separate from the main building.

In the mid nineteen hundreds the wood posts were replaced by concrete pillars and the bell was moved to a newly constructed tower. In more recent times the roof received repairs both inside and out and an attractive spire was added atop the tower.”

Custodial history

The records were kept and maintained at St. Luke’s Church, Old Bonaventure until 2009 when they were donated to the archives by a congregational/community committee.
