Huron Our Story DVD

Huron Our Story DVD
A 30-minute DVD has been produced as part of the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the Diocese of Huron and its first bishop, Benjamin Cronyn of London.

Rev Nick Wells of Christ Church, Corunna was the Diocesan representative charged with oversight of the project, and portrays Benjamin Cronyn in the DVD. Rev Greg Little of the Parish of St. James Parkhill with St. Mary's, Brinsley plays Bishop John Strachan of Toronto. There is a cast of about 50.

The $19,000 DVD was supported by the Mildred Grimes trust at Exeter's Trivitt Memorial church and three of Cronyn's direct descendants, who helped the project in memory of their parents, the late Barbara and John Cronyn of London. The DVD costs $10 and is available through local Anglican churches and the Diocese of Huron office, 190 Queens Ave, London 519-434-6893.
