St. Peter's Cathedral Monthly magazine

  • CA PEI SPCA 900-23
  • Series
  • 1923 - 2003

The series consists of copies of St. Peter's 'Cathedral Monthly' magazine, a magazine produced by the church to share social events and other news about activities and events across the church community. The following background about the Cathedral Monthly is adapted from information provided on the St. Peter's Cathedral Church website in March 2004 (http://www.stpeter.org/cathmon.html, accessed 14 February 2020):

The 'Cathedral Monthly' has its roots in a publication of that name that was first produced in St. Peter's Cathedral Parish during the incumbency of Canon E. M. Malone. Over the years since then, there have from time to time been various parish newsletters. The name 'Cathedral Monthly' was revived under the editorship of Peggy Holland (now Peggy Williams) in 1991, when she began editing and producing a monthly parish newsletter. Since then, the 'Monthly' continued up to 2004. The name "Monthly" was retained even in more recent years, when the publication was not produced monthly but every two months or so, except during the summer.

From the 1990s to the 2000s, approximately 300 copies of each issue were printed for parishioners, and another 20 copies were made available for subscribers and gift subscriptions. The money paid by subscribers and received as donations paid the cost of printing and mailing these copies.

Editors in the 2000s included Paula Connolly and June McKarris.

As noted in the 2004 description on the church website, the vision of June McKarris, as editor, was as follows: "each group or organization in the church should contribute a report for each issue of the Monthly. This way, those parishioners who do not get out to church on a regular basis and those of us who do attend each Sunday would be kept apprised of what is going on in our parish. June feels that the 'Cathedral Monthly' is a perfect instrument to showcase our beautiful Cathedral and the hard work many of our groups perform to sustain our present level of success. She is aware that many parishioners are interested in reading what is in the Personal and Parochial section, and she depends on you to pass on any information that you can for this column."

Publication of the magazine ended in 2003.

The copies available in St. Peter's Cathedral Church Archives appear to provide a complete run of the magazine. Additional copies are available for reference and display purposes.
