I CAPTURED THIS IN KINGSTON ONTARIO ALTHOUGH I HAD TO DO SOME WORK ON THIS PICTURE TAKING PHOTO FROM ACROSS A BUSY ROAD THERE WERE ALOT OF HYDRO WIRES IN THE WAY OF THE CHURCH WHICH I HAD TO CAREFULY REMOVE IN ORDER TO HAVE THE CHURCH LIKE THIS WITH NO OBSTRUCTION.
I FOUND THE NAME OF THE CHURCH VERY DIFFERENT AND UNUSUAL SO I DID SOME READING UP ON IT AS TO WHY THEY MAY HAVE NAMED IT THIS NAME
..
DEDICATED TO ALL WHO LOVE CHURCHES HISTORY OF THEM AND FOR THE HOUSE OF WORSHIP

Luke 23:32-43, Two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him. 33 When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left. 34 But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves. 35 And the people stood by, looking on. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One.” 36 The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine, 37 and saying, “If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!” 38 Now there was also an inscription above Him, “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.” 39 One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!” 40 But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 “And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” 42 And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” 43 And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

HISTORY CHURCH OF THE GOOD THIEF
A fascinating history of the Parish was compiled in 1994 by Lenore Majoros entitled “Celebrating the Centennial”.

The Parish was formed in 1894 when the Church was built at the cost of $14,297.00. Native limestone, of which the building is constructed, was quarried by the prisoners of Kingston Penitentiary and carried by these men to the site of the church. Each man was given 25c a day for his labour. When appointing the first pastor for this new parish, Archbishop Cleary provided a strong link between the Church and the prisoners by also naming him Chaplain for the penitentiary. The Church was named after St. Dismas, the thief crucified with Christ and the only man to be canonized by him. For many years this was the only Church in the world dedicated to St. Dismas. In 1952, a statue of St Dismas was placed in a niche over the front door.

The Presbytery was built immediately after the construction of the Church The Church required extensive restoration in 1992 at the cost of $225, 421. At that time a corner stone and time capsule were installed in the wall of the church.

There have now been eight Pastors of the parish in 115 years:
