St. Paul's Anglican, Port Dover, OntarioPort Dover has a population of about 5,500. It is located in Long Point Bay on the north shore of Lake Erie.

Each year,on the first Sunday in March, St. Paul's hosts the annual Fishermen’s Service. Everyone is invited to come and celebrate a very important aspect of life in Port Dover, commercial fishing.

St. Paul's Church pays tribute to those who made their living on the lake, and prayers are said for those who continue that tradition. The church is decorated with fishing nets, a ship's
wheel and various other items that are part of a fisherman's equipment.

Rev. Kendall Reimer has been the Rector of St. Paul's, Port Dover since September 2006.
