Since the opening of the Clearwater Lake Hospital, the Rectors of Christ Church have actively participated in seeing to the needs of Anglican Indian and Eskimo patients. At present a visit is made weekly, and the Holy Communion is taken to the patients monthly. Our Womens organizations have actively assisted in the work of making the patients stay in the hospital a little more pleasant—gifts are distribued at Christmas and Easter, and some of the women have visited patients distributing reading material.

On Aug. 20, 1959 during the incumbency of Rev. H_ I, G. Ragg, the new Parish Hall was dedicated by the Rt. Rev. l. A. Norris, Lord Bishop of Brandon—the new Parish Hall has been used continually since Novem- ber of l959. The old Parish Hall which was situated on the corner of Edwards Ave. and' lst Street was removed and in its place stands a service station. The Parish Hall is attached to the Church, and is used extensively by the Sunday School, youth groups and Women’s organizations.

A new organ was dedicated to the Glory of God and in loving memory of 'Reginald Heber Bagshaw and his wife Clara Selina, at the ll a.m. service on October 9, 1960.

Christ Church is the Parish Church for some three hundred families residing in the Town‘of The Pas and district. We have an active Sunday School, under leadership of [Mrs James and Miss Whitten, which we have had to divide—the younger members accompany- ing their parents to church at ll a.m. and going into the Parish Hall for lessons.

The older members of the Sunday School meet at 10 a.m. Within the Parish there are several hard working

groups of women The Senior Guild, The Junior Guild, 'The Senior W.A., Riverside W.A. (Young

women) and the Altar Guild. Christ Church spon- sors The lst The Pas Scout Troop and Cub Pack. Brownies and Guides meet regularly in the Parish

Hall—and Junior Auxiliary and Girls Auxiliary meet regularly also. The choir, many of whose members like Chas. Hill have been faithful for a number of years, hopes to add to its numbers. To this end a small junior choir'is being trained by Mrs. Geo. Bag- shaw and Mrs. C. Gibson. This year Christ Church Men’s Club came into being and will be a source of fellowship and work for Churchmen,

We congratulate the Town of The Pas on its Fiftieth Anniversary, and pray that as the town expands so this Parish will, God willing, expand also and continue to serve the needs of the residents.
