Opening and Dedication of St. Peter's New Church on Wednesday last was a most eventful day in the history of Presbyterianism in our district, for on that day the doors of that edifice which had served as a place of worship for over half a century were closed, and that fine example of modern architecture, St. Peter's new church, was opened and solemnly dedicated with great ceremony."
