Canadian Faith communities with pacifist beliefs. Dedicated to David Wells and other conscientious objectors

In a number of the faith communities , a man ordinarily subject to conscription for military service could obtain a certificate of exemption if he objected conscientiously to combatant service and was prohibited from engaging in warfare “by the tenets and articles of faith, in effect on the sixth day of July, 1917, of any organized religious denomination existing and well recognized in Canada at such date, and to which he in good faith belongs.” Some communities such as the Disciples of Christ, International Bible Students Association, Pentecostal Assemblies, and Plymouth Brethren were not organized or recognized religious denominations under the terms of the act, even though all of them were committed to pacifist principles. The community remembers the Lives of the members of all these faith groups as identified on their attestation papers. Other conscientious objectors including those who served are also remembered.
