our history

The parish was opened in the 1950s at a time when the diocese was establishing a number of new parishes in the suburbs of Toronto. The original church was built in 1955 and now sets as the parish hall and Sunday school. The present church building was erected in 1967 and includes the worship area, sacristy, a meeting room, offices for the priest and for administration. There is an en-suite two-piece washroom in the rector's office. The seating capacity of the sanctuary is 300 with additional seating for the choir. The buildings have been well maintained and are in good condition. The most recent building inspection was done in 2008. 

The original building, plus the newer building, now form one L-shaped building. The parish hall was the original church. The upper level (formerly the worship area) contains Sunday school, choir changing/robing rooms, wardens' room, and a printer and photocopying room. The lower level (8 or 9 steps down) contains a large hall for meetings, lunch and dinner parties and a large, well equipped kitchen. Men's and women's washrooms are on the lower level.

The Rev. Sister Mary Florence Liew has had a long journey to get to St. Peter’s. Born in Malaysia on Borneo Island, she joined the Community of the Companion of Jesus the Good Shepherd, an Anglican religious teaching order which led her to the interior jungle inhabited by the Sea Dyak, a head hunting tribe to teach English and Christianity. Emerging from the jungle nine years later, she continued to teach and eventually manage the afternoon school at the diocesan secondary school of St. Mary’s in Kuching, Malaysia. Fast forward to 1989 and the Diocese of Ottawa where she was ordained and served at St. Stephen’s until moving as rector at St. Mary the Virgin Church in St. Anthony, NL. Many years later, She became chaplain at the Mimico Correctional Centre. Two years later, she returned to parish ministry taking on ten churches in a three point parish over a 90km radius in eastern townships, Quebec. Landing back in Toronto, this time as a retired priest, she was welcomed at St. Olave’s Windermere as an Honorary Assistant. She found her way to St. Peter’s and in 2017 she was appointed Honorary Assistant. Coming out of retirement two years later, she was appointed Priest in charge of St. Peter’s and is deeply committed to the congregation and serving The Lord.
