Welcome to St John’s Anglican Church
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia


St. John’s, Lunenburg has been a place of welcome and worship since 1753. St. John’s not only has a rich history in the Anglican tradition, we also have a Vision for what God is calling the parish to be and do in the 21st Century. The Parish is a community of caring people who gather to worship and praise God in Common Prayer. We seek to look beyond the walls of the church and make a difference for good in the community and world. The parish provides a number of Christian education activities for children and adults.

We invite you to tour our website and discover some of the richness of our parish. If you are a parishioner, we hope that you will find the information you are seeking here on the website. If you are planning to visit St. John’s, we hope that the website will assist you in discovering St. John’s Church, Lunenburg, NS


Welcome Rev. Laura Marie Piotrowicz,

as our new Rector

As the Parish of St. John’s in Lunenburg turns the page on a chapter of its history, we are reminded of the sentiment emanating from the visioning process undertaken in the first half of 2018 – we will “celebrate our rich past and heritage while embracing the journey into the future as it takes us in new directions to successfully fulfill our mission within the changing dynamics of today’s environment.” In celebrating our past, we have so much to be thankful for in the spiritual leadership of both Fathers Michael Mitchell and Alvin Westgate – not enough can be said!


However, as we now turn the page, we are incredibly excited to welcome Rev. Laura Marie Piotrowicz as our new Rector effective 1 January 2019. Rev. Laura Marie and her two canine companions, Watson and Guinness, come to us most recently from the Parish of St. John’s, St. Catharines in the Diocese of Niagara and will make their new home in our Rectory. She is as enthusiastic and passionate about our Shared Vision as parishioners were in its creation and we look forward to the demonstrated energy and spiritual leadership that she brings to help guide us all towards this exciting future. WELCOME HOME LAURA MARIE to both the Parish of St. John’s and the community of Lunenburg!
