The following figures and particulars will be of interest to the members of this vestry and parish.
There are over 550 families that claim the care and ministrations of St. John's Church, the total church population being over 2,500. The regular services have been maintained and there have been many special and very impressive services.
There have been 145 celebrations of the Holy Communion. Sunday services numbered 185; Week day services 96 -- making a total of 281; this does not include services in the hospitals, or with the sick in their own homes. There were Baptisms 51; Confirmed 36; Marriages 19; Burials 32.
The Nine Parish organizations are strong and nourishing and have had a very successful year. Their finances are in good condition and show a total balance on hand of $1,775.64. You will note the number of burials was larger this past year than usual. Many have been the hearts and homes that claimed our active sympathy, and among them the families of two of our clergy, viz.: The Rev. E. G. Heaven, in the first of the year, and the Rev. George Code, near the close of the year, both of them faithful shepherds, beloved of their flocks, and "faithful unto death."
One of the special and impressive services of the past year, was held on Monday, June 24th, when the Lord Bishop of the Diocese and fourteen of the clergy were with us for the ordination of the Rev. E.H. Costigan, B.A., to the priesthood, and whose good and faithful services we all appreciate.
Other Special Services and days we will long remember with pleasure and pride are those in connection with the gathering together here of the members of the Woman's Auxiliary of the whole Diocese of Ottawa, to hold their Annual Diocesan Conference. This was something no other parish of this diocese could undertake alone. But, owing to our equipment, and the splendid and loyal work of the members of the parish, men and women, it was a wonderful success and a great credit to our people and parish. We received praise and congratulations from all parts of the diocese, and your rector was very proud of the parish and people.
I desire to express my thanks for, and my appreciation of, the faithful work of our church wardens, during the past year.
Time and space will not permit my giving the full measure of credit and praise due the officers and members of our various organizations. May God's blessing be upon us all, throughout the New Year.
-- D'ARCY T. CLAYTON, Rector.
To the Members of St. John's Church, Smiths Falls, Ontario :|
We, your Church Wardens herewith present the financial statement for the Church year, ending 31st of December, 1929. The present year has been a satisfactory one. No outstanding improvement in our financial position has been recorded, but notwithstanding our increased expenditures in general maintenance account, no retrogression has occurred and our floating debt remains at practically the same figure as last year. Contributions from loose collections and envelopes were higher than the preceding year, which indicates greater efforts and more liberal support on the part of our members to the general and Mission Funds. An outstanding feature of the fiscal year was the beautification of the Chancel by the acquisition of new lighting standards, and the laying of the hardwood floor. The latter improvement was entirely financed by the Women's Guild.
Too much stress cannot be laid upon the recommendation of the retiring Wardens of last year for an immediate canvass of the Parish with a view of enlisting the support of old and new subscribers toward liquidating our floating debt of $1,000, and making provision for the maintenance and improvement of the Church property. The Women's Guild intend to re-decorate the interior of the Church during the summer of 1930, and it is imperative that the roof be repaired before the work is undertaken. Since the date of our last canvass many changes have taken place in the parish. Some of the older families who contributed generously to the Support of the Church have moved away, and others have been added. Your retiring Wardens suggest that a new census of our Church population be taken, and a systematic canvass made.
The Wardens desire to express their warmest thanks and appreciation to the various organizations of the Church for their untiring efforts, loyal co-operation and material assistance rendered during the year.
All of which is respectfully submitted,
