The Home Circle at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church has been in existence for 130 years. The roots of the W.M.S. (Womens Missionary Society) date back to 1864 however.

The Presidents of this society are listed below with the dates of Presidency.

Mrs. Margaret Malloch 1878-1883

Mrs. Helen Watson 1885-1887

Mrs. Jessie McKellar 1928-1932

Miss Blanche Armstrong 1937-1939

Mrs. Jessie Whittington 1967-2000

Mrs. Rhonda Harvey - 2000 to present time.
The work that this ladies group does, includes giving money to held three children in the Sunday School go to camp, giving money to three young people to attend the Presbyterian Youth gathering in another city, and helping young people who attend Brock University. Their money is also used to help support the Christian Education's foster child in Central America.
This, of course, is only a snapshot of what the ladies have done and continue to do.
