StMary Church

St. MARY’S CHURCH

 

In 1889 farmer John Sparrow gave this land as a cemetery after his son, aged 19, was accidentally shot by pitlampers. Saltspring’s first Anglican rector, the Rev. Belton Haslam assembled lumber at Fulford beach and his successor, the Rev. Edward Wilson, used five volunteer wagons and teams to cart it here for Fred Raynes to build this church. Bishop Perrin consecrated it on June 3, 1894, two years after completion of St. Mark’s at Central Settlement. Inherited from Victoria were pews from the second wooden cathedral and vestry windows from St. John’s, the “Iron Church.”
