    A History of the Church Lads’ Brigade (CLB)

    The year 2017 marks 125 years of service in Newfoundland for the Church Lads’ Brigade. Today, it is the oldest and largest Anglican youth organization in Canada. The CLB is also one of the most recognizable civic organizations in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, known nationally for its regimental band. Since 1892 there have been more than 20,000 members in Newfoundland, with about 12,000 still living. Approximately 600 members in eighteen active companies are still listed on strength.

    The Right Reverend Geoff Peddle, Ph.D., is the regimental chaplain to the CLB. Here, he recounts the history of this incredible organization while telling the story of its continuing work today.
