Religion[edit]

Halcro has an Anglican church with a cemetery. The church is called St. Andrew's and located on Halcro Church Road. Early in 2006, the church was vandalized and the consensus was to demolish it. But after meeting was held in Birch Hills, they decided that the foundation was in good enough condition that it could be fixed.
