Dates of existence


Originally built as a Methodist Episcopal Church, St. George's, Ottawa was purchased in 1885. The first Anglican service in the church was held on May 31st that year. The main spire was struck by lightning twice on June 28, 1898 and set ablaze. When repaired, the decision was made to have it not extend above the original brickwork. In 1906, a parish hall was erected by the congregation. Bishop John Charles Roper consecrated St. George's, Ottawa on October 14, 1928. A rectory was purchased around 1929. In 1960, St. George's marked its 75th anniversary and the centennial was celebrated at Easter of 1985 for which major renovations to the church and parish hall were undertaken.
