Atlantic Theological Conference Archives

  • 1983, 1993-2000, 2019

According to source information provided by St. Peter's Cathedral Church, the Atlantic Theological Conference was established in order to bring together people from all walks of life to hear papers and participate in discussions on issues of enduring theological importance. The Atlantic Theological Conference has no official church sponsorship and is funded through registration fees and individual donations. A grant from the Segelberg Trust (http://segelbergtrust.ca/) has provided additional support for the conference for several years.

Mothers' Union archives

  • CA PEI SPCA 013
  • Fonds
  • 1979-1995

The Mothers' Union archives consist of meeting agendas and minutes, reports, financial records, programmes and booklets, newsletters, other textual records, photographs, newspaper clippings, artifacts, and an unidentified audiocassette. The activities and events documented in the archives include: hosting pancake breakfasts on the first day of Sunday School in early September; baking simnel cakes (a form of fruitcake) as part of Mothering Sunday; participating in the annual Christmas pageant; stitching needlepoint covers for church kneelers; organizing “Winter Games” events (evening gatherings of parishioners and others to play card games and board games in the church hall in winter); holdings prayer sessions and meetings for members; providing support for refugees and newcomers to the Island; creating a “link letters” activity comparable to “pen pals”; and holding regular meetings. A major project for the Prince Edward Island chapter documented in the archives is the creation of a Mothers’ Union banner, which was unveiled on 24 May 1992.

Information provided by St. Peter's Cathedral Church parishioner Catherine Edwards in February 2020 suggests that Donalda Winter and Eileen Paton were responsible for bringing the Mothers' Union to St. Peter's Cathedral.

St. Peter's Cathedral Church annual reports

  • CA PEI SPCA 900-01
  • Series
  • 1887-2019

The series consists of master copies and additional copies of published annual reports for St. Peter's Cathedral Church. The series of reports is largely complete, with copies missing for the years 1965, and 1973.

The annual reports were formatted differently over the years. In the 19th century, reports were published as small self-inclusive booklets. Then they were published as part of the St. Peter's Parish Monthly Magazine for a few years before returning to booklet form. In 1994, individual reports from committees and groups were consolidated into a document, usually with a cover page, which served as the annual report but which also included the minutes of the previous year's annual meeting along with an agenda for the current year's annual meeting.
