2024 Kayak & Canoe Outing!

Archdeacon Nancy Beale blessing the kayakers and canoeist as the prepare to head down Black River

On Victoria Day, Monday, May 20, St. Philip’s held its annual Kayak & Canoe outing. The sun shone warmly for our trip down the Black River.  Over thirty participants left from the Chapman Crescent launch site, and paddled their way toward the Canada flag, about halfway to the Black River bridge, and then back to the Guernsey’s shore. Hot dogs, cold drinks and a social time were enjoyed on the St. Philips lawn following the time on the water. We didn’t discriminate against those who didn’t quite make it all the way to the flag…there was lots of food for everyone! Does it look like we had some fun? Well, you are right – we did!
