The (Canterbury) House

 

 

The house was bought and refurbished with the aid of the Diocesan Missionary Society.  In order to honor creation, it was devised to be an environmentally responsible place.  A recycling bin is available in the kitchen, most of the furniture was re-purposed or bought from eco-friendly sellers, and all cleaning services and products used are green.

 

The Canterbury House was blessed by the Rt. Rev. David Jones, Suffragan Bishop of Virginia, on September 13, 2008.
