Honouring our Heritage

The Archives and History Committee is pleased to introduce the “Honouring Our Heritage – Celebrating The United Church of Canada Historic Commemorations Program” to encourage the commemoration of aspects of the history and culture of The United Church of Canada and its predecessor Churches.

The Historic Commemorations Program allows us to better recognize, honour and interpret our cultural and historic treasures. A unique aspect of the Program is the recognition of the intangible aspects of United Church history and heritage: the customs, cultural practices, traditional knowledge that defines the Church.

Check out recent commemorations via the list on the left column of this page or by using the menu tabs at the top of the page. New commemorations will be added as soon as nominations are reviewed and approved. Please visit the 'nomination process' tab above to submit a nomination. Thank you for visiting and sharing in The United Church of Canada's heritage!
