Holy Apostolic Assyrian Church of The East

Today we take a quick jog over to Gilles and Lillian, where I noticed some recent changes to the old St. Mary’s Hungarian Orthodox Church…

I noticed new lettering on the facade…

Looks like another dwindling ethnic congregation is replaced by another. St. Mary’s is now St. Thomas Assyrian Church of the East. I notice also that the orthodox crosses have been removed.

I can’t help but notice how many church have been saved by Windsor’s growing population segments. Coptics, Chaldeans, Maronites and now Assyrians. If it wasn’t for these groups there would be a lot of empty holes in the older parts of the city.
