Holy Trinity Alma Anglican Church - 125 years

     This year marks 125 years since Holy Trinity Anglican Church was consecrated - it is located on the western Road in Alma.
     The old church, despite being in excellent condition, has an uncertain future - like most rural churches on our Island and throughout our country, they have lost their place in our society.  This little church belongs to the Parish of Alberton-O'Leary which has a total of four churches and a dwindling congregation.  Memorial services are held here twice every summer - the old families are mostly gone and the new generation has little interest in old ways and traditions.
     Below are a few photos from the August 16th service this past summer.
