The 50th anniversary of St. George’s, Waba was celebrated on November 19, 1958 and the 90th anniversary was celebrated in 1998. Waba is in the parish of Pakenham with St. Mark’s, Pakenham and St. John’s, Antrim.

Situated on Maple Hill on Campbell Side Road in Mississippi Mills, just outside
the village of Waba,you will find the quaint Anglican church of St.George’s,Waba.
Designated the smallest church in the Diocese of Ottawa, this is the third church
in the Parish of Pakenham. St. George’s Church was built on a parcel of land
given by John and Josephine Morphy in 1908. This little church was constructed
with local materials, partially furnished with donations from nearby churches
and completed with the devotion and faith of the local community. Our Archives
have located receipts from a small matchbox in the church that shows supplies
purchased from local merchants. There have only been eight weddings held in
the history of the church, the last in 2004.The last Sunday in July there is a special celebration for all points at an outdoor service ‘Under the Maples’ followed by a pot luck picnic. Services are held on the 2nd and last Sundays of the month from May to October
