Canon (Harry) Morrow (1916-2012) was born in Hamilton, Ontario on April 11, 1916. Morrow worked as a teacher and wood working instructor in the 1940s at the Shingwauk Indian Residential School. Canon Morrow met his wife Edith Elford while working at Shingwauk. Morrow later became a minister and was ordained in the Anglican Church as a Deacon in 1954 and as a Priest in 1955.
Harry served in numerous parishes including Garden River, Manitoulin Island, Sudbury, New Liskeard, and Thunder Bay. Canon Morrow was the rector of St. John the Evangelist in Thunder Bay from 1973 to 1981 when he retired to Sault Ste. Marie. Nicknamed “the good Canon”, he and his wife, Edith May, were heavily involved in the life and work of the Cathedral, parlaying their many skills into new and novel activities. Harry was known for his inventive means of bringing the Gospel message alive through the use of drama, mascots, humor, and artistic skills. In addition to serving as an honorary assistant at the Cathedral, Canon Morrow was also responsible for carving a beautiful wooden Canterbury Cross which hangs in the Cathedral Chapel and was dedicated to Archbishop Wright and Bishop Nock. He was active in the Kiwanis Club of Sault Ste. Marie for over 40 years and supported numerous charities in Sault Ste Marie. Harry and Edith were parents to two children, Mary Nock (David) and Kevin Morrow “Joshua”. Canon Morrow passed away on January 27, 2012 at the age of 96.
