Administrative history

St Saviour's Parish began as a mission in 1914. Services were held in Reverend Walter Anderson's home in Morse Place. At the time, his home was still under construction and worshippers had to sit on two-by-fours and kegs of nails. Morse Place was a housing development in East Kildonan named after George Mohr. A small church was eventually built on the south side of Moncton Avenue and opened 30 April 1915. It was later moved to the present site at 690 Munroe Avenue in the 1930s. St Saviour's was incorporated as a parish on 10 September 1929. A combined church/hall was built in 1955 and the old church was demolished. A growing congregation forced larger accommodations and the present church was built in 1964. It was dedicated 10 September 1964. Several church furnishings were donated to St Saviour's, including the pews and alter rail, which came from Christ Church and the oak litney desk came from Holy Trinity. In the late 1960s, St Saviour's began sharing a minister with St Cuthbert's. A deteriorating church forced St Cuthbert's to close and the congregation merged with St Saviour's in 1972. The proceeds of the sale of St Cuthbert's church allowed St Saviour's to pay off their mortgage and the building was consecrated 22 September 1974. The chapel was renamed for St Cuthbert. A new parish hall was dedicated on 11 February 1979 and a basement was added in 1980s.
