General note

Played by: Joe Bryant (Joseph), Jessie Arkwright (Mary), Walter Brodie (Simeon), Arkwright (Anna the prophetess ). The Jasper Anglican Church began in 1913 with the donation of a small boxcar to hold services. Dry cedar logs were then donated by Mr. McCall of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The church had two cash donors thus ending up with two names: St. Mary and St. George Church. The Women's Auxiliary raised money to furnish the church bit by bit. A tower was built as accommodations for the clergy. Rev. Edwards later submitted plans for a rectory which was built by him and his wife. In memory of her son, an English woman anonymously cleared the church's debt and donated twenty thousand dollars to rebuild the church. Mr. Calderon, an architect, was hired to design the church. Governor General Willingdon laid the cornerstone in July and the first service was held December 22, 1928. It was consecrated the following year by Bishop Gray. Since 1925, an annual memorial has been held at the foot of Mt. Edith Cavell for the British nurse Edith Cavell. The church tower is also dedicated to her memory.<br><br>
