St. Mary Magdalene Church is a very beautiful and welcoming venue for weddings, baptisms and funerals.  Those interested in having a service at the church should contact Reverend Dr. Bram Pearce at 613 476 3303.

The church has a long-standing reputation for excellent acoustics.  Over the years, STMM has been fortunate to host annually the Prince Edward Chamber Music Festival, the Jazz Festival, and the internationally known Music at Port Milford, amongst others. 

The Parish Hall is a very bright, large space which has been used over the past years to host the local Tai Chi group, the art group, as well as various functions including receptions, pot luck lunches, and seasonal festivities, such as the ever-popular pancake supper. 

There are other smaller spaces for rent, and we welcome prospective renters to contact the church office and book a visit to view the areas that are available.
