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 following years: 1965, 1973, and 1983.

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.

St. Peter's Cathedral Church service bulletins, programmes, and leaflets

  • CA PEI SPCA 900-20
  • Series
  • 1869-2019

The service bulletins series consists of bulletins, programmes, and leaflets prepared for St. Peter's church services and other special events. The regular service bulletins include information about the order of service as well as announcements and notices for the benefit of parishioners. Special service bulletins relate to funerals, weddings, confirmations, youth programmes, concerts, and ordinations, as well as leaflets about flowers for different services.

At least one copy of every bulletin found in the backlog has been retained, but the series is not complete and there are gaps in the records over the years. This series will expand as recent bulletins are transferred from the church office to the Archives.

A small selection of bulletins are described individually, with PDF copies produced for reference, if the bulletins relate to audiovisual recordings of the services in question. There is no plan to digitize all service bulletins at this time.

St. Peter's Cathedral Church Directory of Members

  • CA PEI SPCA 900-24
  • File
  • 1985

The photographic directory of members consisted of two binders of photographs attached to construction paper, with the names of parishioners written on the paper. Pages appear to have been created for every member of the church but not all pages have photographs attached. The directory was originally divided into three three-ring binders (28 x 29 cm each): the first for parishioners with last names A to J, the second for last names from K to O, and the third for last names from P to Y. In order to preserve the photographs safely, the photographs and sheets of paper were removed from the binders and placed in files in alphabetical order as follows: File 1: A-E, File 2: F-J, File 3: K-Mc, File 4: Me-R, File 5: S-Y, File 6: To Be Identified. The approximate date that the photographs were taken is 1985, based on information provided by parishioners in 2020.
