Parish Churches on the Southern Shore
From Goulds to Cappahayden

Contributed by Roberta Sullivan, Coordinator Ferryland District


Anglican -
Goulds / Kilbride  = St  Paul's    709-368-3078. The only 
church is St Pauls which now holds the records of both 
Presentation and St Matthews churches. Those were the two 
Anglican churches in the Goulds. They were replaced in the 
1960s. The records there begin with B-1903, M-1904, D-1945 
and there are a few records from the 1860s but they are very 
few, most were lost over the years from floods, fire, etc.
