The History of St. Anne’s
St. Anne’s Parish was created September 1, 1967 and Rev. P.J. Costello was appointed pastor to shepherd approximately 250 families. Until the new church and rectory were built, masses were conducted in the Central Elgin Collegiate Auditorium and then Parkside Collegiate Auditorium.
The ground-breaking ceremony for the new church was held September 29, 1968. The construction contract of approximately $300,000 was awarded to Evans-Kennedy Construction Co., London and W.M. Smale of Simcoe was the architect. The grand opening was celebrated May 31, 1969.
