Inscription.

Here, in the year 1753, before any church was built, open-air Divine Services were held and Holy Communion administered in English, French, and German, to the first settlers and Garrison of the Town of Lunenburg by the Reverend Jean Baptiste Moreau according to the rites of the Church of England.

Of different races, but of the Protestant Faiths, they intermarried, lived, and worked together in harmony, and in their descendants are blended the virtues of their varied forbears.

Erected by the Congregation of St. John's Church, June 1953.
