Churches & Places of Worship

The people in Powell River and Texada Island, as well as Lund, are fortunate to have a selection of where they can practice their faith of choice. The churches, overall, are an integral part of the community providing food, meals and clothing for the less advantaged as well as three community gardens.

The History of Two Churches in Townsite

Built in 1913, St. John's Church was the result of Powell River residents pooling their resources to build a place of worship.  In 1916 the Catholic community pooled their resources to build St. Joseph's.

Even though the Powell River Company had a policy of keeping itself removed from the community's religious activities they contributed to the completion of both churches. Read more about these churches and other historic buildings at PR Townsite.
