"The idea of a Centennial history of St. Anne [sic] Church and Adelaide Township was suggested in January, 1967, at the Annual Vestry Meeting of St. Ann's by the Reeve of Adelaide Township, Charles Nichols. It has been a fascinating project as well as a frustrating one". -- Preface.

The Anglican Church of Canada through its Primate's World Relief Fund has sent $2,500 to alleviate distress and for restoration work in Aberfan, South Wales, arising from the coal-slag avalanche which took the lives of some 150 persons, mostly children.
In making the money available to Rt. Rev. W.G.H. Simon, Bishop of Llandaff, Canon Maurice Wilkinson, secretary of the relief fund, cabled that the heart-felt prayers of all Canadian Anglicans were being offered for the people of Aberfan.
