BROCK MEMORIALS
Sacred and Secular


On the Heights of Queenston there stands Canada's monument to a great soldier, Major General Sir Isaac Brock, killed in action, Oct. 13th, 1812 A.D. Canada thus expressed her pride of Brock with the erection of this pillar and her gratitude to God in the founding of St. Saviour's Parish in 1817. The erection of a church building soon blessed the landscape near the base of Brock's Bloody Hill.
The first monument erected in 1824 was blown up and directly devoted advocates of the “Saviour of Upper Canada” caused the erection of the present monument, completed in 1856. In the 1870's a group of local residents decided to erect the present church in memory of 'our hero'. St. Saviour's Church was consecrated by Bishop Fuller, Nov. 2nd, 1879. In memory of the York Volunteers, who fought so bravely under General Brock, the York Pioneers presented St. Saviour's with its magnificent memorial altar window.
Two national shrines remain to commemorate the Birth of our Nationhood under God.
