The title of the parish, “Emmanuel” is the name given to Jesus in St. Matthew’s Gospel, which means “God With Us”. We are an inclusive community, open to everyone. All are welcome to share in Communion in the Anglican Church.

Rev. Cathy McCaig

Rev. McCaig was born in Brantford, Ont. and has been an ordained minister since 2006.
She received her master’s degree in pastoral theology from St. Paul University in Ottawa, after being closely involved with the church for decades.

“Sunday morning needs to be a celebration” of one’s faith. As for defining one’s faith, she says that’s not as important as seeing the spirit of God alive in the community.
“When I see the spirit of God in the community, I know we can define faith,” she explains. “It’s how God speaks to them, and how they define faith. And it’s up to me to see how they define their faith so I’m able to journey with them.”

She had the option a few years ago of becoming an ordained vocational deacon, but her husband (Keith) concluded that she was a priest at heart, and that she should pursue being a full-time minister.

In her free time, she enjoys helping out with her dad Donald’s raspberry business, canoeing and camping, and staying updated on environment-related social issues.

Rev. McCaig and her husband also have three adult-age children.


About Emmanuel Anglican Church

Emmanuel Anglican Church in Arnprior is the community’s oldest and most historic church building and has been in use since it was begun in 1869. Before that time, services were held in a number of locations until the land for the church and rectory were donated by Daniel McLachlin. The parish began as a mission and the first Anglican services were held in Arnprior in 1861 by the priest from Fitzroy Harbour, The Rev’d Ebenezer Morris. Arnprior was on the edge of what then seemed a vast wilderness. In 1863 it is recorded that services were held in German, reflecting the immigration pattern of that time and possibly providing an explanation for the naming of the parish Emmanuel. The first Confirmation was held in 1865.

The history of a parish is usually the story of buildings and memorials, and we have been blessed with a beautiful building, grounds, and facilities due to the hard work and generosity of many in the past and present. However, the story of a parish is really the story of God’s People and their faithfulness to the call of God and the Gospel of Christ in their ministry in the world. People have worshipped, prayed, worked, and cared for each other for generations and today to write the story of Emmanuel in its life and mission.
