Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F.

January 1939-1945 A.D. 42,000 Canadian Warriors Die in WWII

January 1939-1945 A.D.  42,000 Canadian Warriors Die in WWII



More than 42,000 Canadians lost their lives as a result of the Second World War.

Canada played a strong role in defeating the Axis powers. The price of victory was high: approximately 23,000 Canadians laid down their lives serving in the army, 17,000 in the air force, 2000 in the navy and 1600 in the merchant navy. Another 54,000 Canadians were wounded and thousands would be physically impaired or psychologically scarred for life. Over 700 Newfoundlanders also died during the war. 
Canadian war cemeteries around the world bear testimony to their sacrifice. “At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we shall remember them.” All Canadians owe the nation’s war dead the debt of remembrance.
