Integrity's 25th Anniversary

Integrity/Toronto was founded when six Canadians went separately to the founding convention of Integrity in Chicago in the summer of 1975, met each other there and decided that a chapter should form in Toronto.

Twenty-five years later, Integrity/Toronto is going strong. We celebrated with a Eucharist on 18 September 2000 - Founders, Benefactors and Missionaries of the Anglican Church of Canada. Sixty-two people gathered to celebrate the founders, benefactors and missionaries of Integrity/Toronto.

Toronto Bishop Terry Finlay presided, and Dr Louie Crew, who founded the Integrity movement in 1974, flew up for the event.

It was a wonderful time to celebrate past accomplishments, and be nourished by the Eucharist for work in the future.
