Administrative history

The first services in Pembroke were held in 1855 in a rented hall called "The Chapel." Nine years later, the site for Holy Trinity Church was deeded by Peter White to the Diocese of Ontario. The cornerstone of the church was laid on August 4, 1864. Due to changes in the civic population, a new church had to be built. On June 30, 1925, the cornerstone for the second Holy Trinity Church was laid and in 1926 the old Holy Trinity Church building was secularized. The new church was consecrated on January 17, 1944 by Bishop Robert Jefferson. By 1998, a new elevator was installed and roof work was done.
