Administrative history

Grand Marais, St Jude, was likely formed as a mission of Scanterbury, St Philip, sometime around the turn of the twentieth century. George Rupert and Alex Knott each donated an acre of land for a church and cemetery. The church was built in 1896 out of black poplar logs. In 1931, an addition to the church building was made, in the form of a chancel, sanctuary and two vestry rooms. In 1965, the congregation of St Jude purchased the former Roman Catholic church building and used it for worship. It was dedicated 25 October 1965. The old church is still used occasionally, having been wired for electric heat sometime in the 1950s. A parish hall is located next to the old church. St Jude, from the time of its formation, has been associated with Scanterbury, St Philip (OW.085) and Balsam Bay, St Luke (OW. 006). At the time of description, St Jude is part of the Eastern Beaches ministry group, that includes Scanterbury, Balsam Bay (entering closure proceedings), and Victoria Beach (OW.097).
