Notes
"The contribution of the Society of St. John the Evangelist to the Muskoka area was recognized this summer [1995] with the unveiling of an Ontario Heritage Foundation plaque at St. Thomas' Church, Bracebridge, in Algoma diocese. Along with local area dignitaries, two members of the order, Rev. Brian Bostwick and Rev. Carl Winter, from Cambridge, Mass., were in attendance. The order began its ministry in Canada in 1927, serving the scattered Anglican missions in Muskoka and opened a monastery a year later. Declining membership led to their withdrawal from the area in 1983". Text of entire article.

Anglican Religious Order Elects Youngest Superior in History

For Immediate Release
Toronto, Ontario, June 4, 1979
The Canadian congregation of the Society of St. John the Evangelist has elected a twenty-eight year old priest, the Rev. Gordon Richard Walls as its Father Superior, to complete the two years remaining in the three-year term of Father David Hemming who died in April.
The headquarters of the Canadian branch of the Society is located at "The Mission House" in Bracebridge, Ontario. The Order was founded in Cowley, England in 1966 and became the first religious order for men to be established successfully in the Anglican Church since the Reformation.
Father Walls is the youngest priest to be made superior in the Order's one hundred and thirteen year history. He is a native of Toronto where he attended East York Collegiate and St. Luke's Church, East York. He entered the Society of St. John the Evangelist in 1970, took his first vows in 1972, and was ordained Deacon and Priest in 1977. He is a graduate of the University of Windsor.
Father Walls was Assistant Superior from 1973 to 1975 and Novice Director from 1973 until his election as Superior last week. The Order he now heads is involved in a variety of missionary, educational and social service work across the country. It is one of three congregations the Society maintains. The others are in England and the United States. Membership is open to both priests and laymen.
The new Superior says that the Society is growing in Canada, the numbers in the Novitiate "are encouraging," and he hopes that in the future additional houses may be opened in other parts of the country. One possibility he discussed was New Brunswick, which, he said, "would mean the restructuring of our work in Muskoka and elsewhere."

Prologue
The following Resolution was passed at the Ruri-decanal Conference of the Comox Rural Deanery, Diocese of Columbia, held at Quathiaski Cove, B.C., Wednesday, April 18, 1934.
Resolved: That as a result of the splendid example and valuable work of "The Fellowship of the West," and with a view to the further work and permanent strengthening of the work of the Church in frontier parts of the Dominion, a "Frontier Missionary Brotherhood" should be undertaken by the Church of England in Canada.
The Brotherhood shall consist of those younger Priests of the Church of England in Canada who will pledge themselves to celibacy for a period of five years - such a period to be renewed as each member of the Order is led to do so - and who, as celibates, shall be prepared to undertake Missionary work, wherever there is a need for the services of the Clergy, free from all domestic ties.
This Brotherhood shall be sponsored by the General Synod of the Church and shall embrace in its membership any and all Clergy who deem that they can render by such a fellowship the greatest possible service to the members of our Church who are isolated from her regular parish ministrations. Signed, F.C. Chapman, Rural Dean of Comox, B.C. Approved, Charles Columbia.
