9 ~ Pickering Township Historical Society

PTHSMonthly Meeting – 7:00 pm NEW TIME
Guest speaker: Dr. Mark G. McGowan "From Pickering to Prelate: Archbishop Denis O'Connor, Farmer, Educator, and Bishop"
Denis O'Connor was born on the family farm in Pickering Township in the 1840s, and became one of the first graduates of St. Michael's College in Toronto. After a distinguished career as a priest and teacher, he became the first Canadian-born archbishop of Toronto. His years leading the Catholic Church in the area were turbulent and filled with controversy - a stark contrast to his earlier peaceful life on the farm and as a teacher.
