Prayer Shelter

prayer shelter

The Prayer Shelter was built in 1985 through the work of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Simcoe.

Anchored by four pillars made of stones collected from the fields at Crieff Hills, its walls are made from local trees and the roof is covered in cedar shingles. It has a stained glass window of praying hands on the north side designed by Jake Vanderzweerde and a small skylight in the ceiling.

Three wooden benches offer a place to sit for those who wish to find a few moments of solitude. The short pine table table has a wooden cross and a journal that collects prayers, poems and comments from those who visit.
