A Conception Bay North Anglican minister is rowing his boat today to help raise funds for St. George’s church in North River.
Anglican Archdeacon for Trinity-Conception-Placentia, Bill Strong, says he got the idea to row his flat-bottomed rowboat out through North River and into Conception Bay to Port de Grave Harbour in an attempt to raise funds to help maintain the aging North River church building.
Reverend Strong says they were looking for a special event to help raise funds for repairs to the 100-year-old church.
Strong is the rector of the Port de Grave Anglican church. Donations can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org or by dropping by St. George’s.
