Our beloved Archdeacon, The Ven. John R, Smith, has this week passed from his earthly life.
Please join us in the funeral service on Thursday, December 13th 2018 at 2 p.m. at The Apostolic Holiness Church (now located at 40 Empress Ave. Hamilton)
The Apostolic Holiness have been our friends and neighbours for many years, and have recently moved to a larger church. They have graciously lent us their home for the day to accommodate the numerous friends of John and his family who wish to come to worship with us.
Rev John was ordained in the Reformed Episcopal Church ten years ago, having previously had a very productive career serving the citizens of Hamilton. He has touched the lives of countless people and he will be missed so greatly from our midst.
Lead us, Heavenly Father, lead us
O’er the world’s tempestuous seas,
Guard us, guide, keep us, feed us
For we have no help but thee
Yet possessing every blessing
If our God our Father be
