Salt+Light Documentary, ‘A Community in Transition: 250 Years of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Windsor’

August 24, 2018

Salt + Light documentary, A Community in Transition: 250 Years of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Windsor, premiered on Tuesday, August 14 inside the historic Assumption Church in Windsor, Ontario.

A Community in Transition: 250 Years of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Windsor explores the history and significance of the oldest Catholic parish in Ontario. Founded in 1767 as a unique Huron and French-Canadian community, the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption has been the cornerstone of Christianity in all southwestern Ontario. Built in 1845, the church is a stunning example of Canadian Gothic Revival and an important symbol of Christianity in this part of the world. Its history of survival and change continues today with the consolidation of neighbouring parishes and the closing of the historic church building. Having witnessed many changes and conflicts over its long history, the parish continues to be a vibrant Christian presence in the Windsor area. This exclusive Salt and Light Television documentary tells the moving story of Assumption Parish from its origins to the present, through the eyes and hearts of many witnesses who have been the living stones of this blessed faith community on the banks of the Detroit River.
