Westminster’s last service

I couldn’t bring myself to cover it. I knew I would be too sad, and too mad. Despite my pretensions, I don’t have a reporter’s objectivity. Happily, talented Hilary Caton was there, and she’s done a better job than I ever could of covering the final service of Westminster United.

Under the church’s wooden roof, people of all ages gathered to sing seven traditional hymns and say their own good-byes to a church that has been a staple not just in their community, but in their family history, too.

  1. Just a minor correction to the coverage: the photo caption refers to the church’s final “mass” and the United Church, like all Protestant denominations, has “services” of worship.
