Ice chapel returns to the shores of Lake Simcoe

St. Paul’s Anglican Church has once again launched a chapel on the ice at the Beaverton Harbour.

The winter tradition got underway in 2014 and serves as a “place for everyone who visits the eastern shore of Lake Simcoe to pray for a good harvest and to give thanks for God’s abundance,” the church’s website notes.

Rev. Canon Ted McCollum initially came up with the idea after spotting a lone hut sitting out on a frozen lake during a drive through Haliburton County.

The modest chapel has a guest book for guests to sign, as well as bench seats, and is visited by hundreds of anglers each year.
