A remembrance is taking place this Sunday (September 1st) at St. Peter’s on-the-Rock on Stoney Lake following the tragic boat crash last week that claimed the lives of two men and injured four others.

As part of the regular Sunday service at 10:30 a.m. at St. Peter’s on-the-Rock, “the island church” on Stoney Lake, there will be a solemn remembrance of the two lives lost and the four others who were injured.

The service will also recognize the many selfless people on Stoney Lake who came together to lend a helping hand during the tragedy.

St. Peter’s on-the-Rock is located at the nexus of Lower and Upper Stony Lake and Clear Lake. The church is only accessible by water; if you don’t have a boat, you may be able to find water taxi from either Carveth’s Marina or Kawartha Park Marina.

Everyone is welcome to attend the service, whether or not you normally attend church.
