St. Mary’s Ecumenical Church



Another photograph from Port Renfrew from a couple of years ago.

This church is a traveller and a bit lost now, I think.

Probably it is looking for its cemetery, which can be found here.

It was originally built in 1874 at Somenos on the other side of Vancouver Island then suffered a bad fire and was rebuilt in 1909.

The church abandoned its cemetery to a lonely existence when it moved to Port Renfrew in 1970.

In its new home it became a joint operation of the Anglican, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian and United Ministries.

I don’t suppose it sees a lot of use these days, but it will be jumping in a couple of weeks as one of the venues for the Song and Surf Music Festival.
