St. Peter's Alberton getting painted

     The church is getting a fresh coat of paint (along with a few exterior misc. repairs).  
     St. Peter's Alberton is the third St. Peter's Church in our Parish.  The first St. Peter's was built in 1865 on the outskirts of town and sold to be used as a house when the second St. Peter's opened in the town of Alberton in 1891, located on the corner of corner of Main and Church Streets.  In 1927 a great fire burned the east side of Main Street - burning all the buildings including the church.  Immediately a committee was struck to build a new church, the third St. Peter's which opened in the fall of 1929.  
     In the 1980's a new foundation was placed under the church to create a Hall with kitchen; Sunday School room, Washrooms, Office, etc.
     Below photo of the present St. Peter's taken not long after construction in 1929.  This photos comes from http://peihistoricplaces.ca/index.php3?number=1029174&lang=E
