On Remembrance Day, 2018, I, accompanied by my wlfe, Beth, attented the Remembrance Service at the Church of the Transfiguration on Manor Rd. in Toronto. The service was conducted by The Reverend Daniel Cranley. And a beautiful service it was.

The church was founded im 1921 by Rev. C. W. Hedley, former Chaplain of the 58th Battalion. The first service was held on June 5, 1921, in a tent.

Beyond attending the Remembrance service, part of the mission was to see the Battle Colours of the 58th Battalion, which reside in the church.

One thought on “The Church of the Transfiguration – Toronto November 11, 2018

  1. Great post, Rick. Agreed that it was a lovely Remembrance Day service. Couldn’t have picked a better place to be for the 100th anniversary of the armistice, or better people to be with than the Friends of the 58th Battallion. We will remember them.
