When faced with the closure of their church in Kingsbridge, Ontario, the local rural community leaped into action and created a not-for-profit organization that purchased the former St. Joseph’s Church and its manse.  Armed with their determination to create a multi-use community hub, they garnered local pledges of support and have begun renovating the buildings for their new uses, with the majority of the work being done by a large team of local volunteers.  It is inspiring to see such community pride in action!
