Our history

St Luke's proudly traces its roots back to 1876.

Scott’s Plains, as Peterborough was first called, was served by The Rev’d William McCauley from Cobourg and The Rev’d Joseph Thompson from Cavan. With the arrival in 1825 of the Peterborough Robinson settlers there was a need for  a school. Samuel Armour moved to the area to become the  school's first headmaster.

Frances Stewart — Mrs Thomas A Stewart — lived just north of the village. She had been petitioning her homeland of Ireland for funds to establish a church in the local area. Samuel Armour commenced Services in the school house while, at the same time, he was studying to become a clergy.

On 24 September 1826, the church was officially declared a mission just two days after Armour had been ordained a Deacon in the Diocese of Quebec which was comprised of Lower and Upper Canada.
