Biographical history

St Philip's Anglican Church is located in the community of Hodgson, in the Rural Municipality of Fisher, 90 miles north of Winnipeg. The Rev Maurice Sanderson was sent to the Peguis area and held services in private homes during the early years of the mission. Hodgson first appears in the 1913 Synod Journal, and fundraising for a church building began during the First World War. A Mrs Nosworthy from Liverpool, England made a financial contribution to the new church in memory of her son Philip, who was to have been a missionary in Northwest Canada before he was killed in the First World War. The church, built between 1919 and 1920, was named St Philip in his honour. Originally, the church was built on posts, but a rock foundation was installed after the foundation collapsed during a well attended funeral. A tabernacle was built later by a Mrs O'Malley. The first service at St Philip's was held on February 8, 1920. It has always been associated with Peguis (OW.068), and the mission has also included Fisherton (OW.029) and Marble Ridge. The church building has served other denominations and faiths over the years.
