    Fr. Stewart Murray helps Ruth Barry, whose family has been part of St. Barnabas since 1917 to cut the Anniversary cake. Looking on are The Most Rev. Frederick Hiltz, Primate of Canada, and the Rt. Rev. John H. Chapman, Bishop of Ottawa

    Recognition and celebration took many forms at the anniversary dinner marking the various dedicatory milestones for St. Barnabas. Along with members of the parish and clergy, both Bishop John Chapman of the Diocese of Ottawa and Archbishop Frederick Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, were on hand to mark the 62nd anniversary of the present church’s consecration, and the overarching 125th year of the parish’s founding. A key participant in the proceedings at the Royal Ottawa Golf Club last Saturday was Ruth Barry, whose family represents an unbroken line of congregational attendance since 1917, and who, along with Rev. Stewart Murray, cut the anniversary cake.
