Glenboro Pastoral Charge

  • Corporate body

At Union in 1925, the Glenboro Pastoral charge consisted of Victoria, Fair Valley and Glenboro. Fair Valley left the charge in 1937, to be replaced by Patricia the following year. Stockton joined the charge in 1941. The charge remained a four-point charge until 1954, when both Victoria and Patricia left the charge.

In September of 2005, Glenboro amalgamated with the Baldur-Belmont and Holland-Cypress River Pastoral charges to become Prairie Vision Pastoral charge. At the time of description, Glenboro continues to be a part of the Prairie Vision Pastoral Charge in Agassiz Presbytery.
