    the Rosedale Long Term Care Centre The Presbyterian Church was sorely tried at the time of Church Union In 1925 Rosedale voted 143 to 125 to remain in the Presbyterian Church Unfortunately we lost about one third of our families The Depression affected everyone as did the war that followed in the next decade As in the Great War many members of Rosedale s family gave their lives in service After World War ll families began to grow and once more to prosper In 1949 the mortgage was paid off In later years a manse was purchased On September 18 1955 the Christian Education wing was dedicated This was a direct result of the determination of one young mother who could not attend church because she had three children to tend Joined with others in similar circumstancesl a Sunday School was established and built onto the existing sanctuary structure In 1956 matching front doors were donated in memory of Lt Col and Mrs Duncan Donald by their daughter Also in 1956 the Rosedale Church Library was created in memory of Mrs Elizabeth Cargill by her daughter The lovely mural was painted by James B Francis the father of one of our current members We have had major fundraisers for important but unglamorous things such as a new furnace system but as well we succeeded in purchasing our glorious Karl Wilhelm Organ which was dedicated November 20 1982 with an inaugural recital by Douglas Bodle renowned Canadian organist Some interesting tidbits When the carpenter who was an Anglican submitted his bid for the pews in the original church he naturally included kneelers As good Scottish Presbyterians of the time we chose to keep what we paid for and as far as we know are the only Presbyterian Church that has them Why do we have a fireplace in our sanctuary It is believed that the area of our transept was once the lounge or reception area for the original church building Do we have bells We did have chimes donated to peal from the tower but they got disconnected during some renovations or was it too early in the morning for the neighbours to hear them A member of our congregation moved from Montreal several years ago Actively looking for a church he visited Rosedale to see the window that his grandmother had placed in the church and dedicated to his grandfather who had had an early death He is still here and sits right under the window with the U of T crest Ministers We were one of the first Presbyterian Churches in Canada to have a repeat Rev J B Paulin served for six years then returned a decade later for another 15 years And then we did it again with James Smart The following have been our ministers at Rosedale Presbyterian Church photos of past ministers are in the hallway leading to the Upper Hall 1909 17 Daniel Strachan 1918 24 J B Paulin 1926 29 Wilffid Lewis
