The Church with the (Really) Blue Doors
We drive past this rather modern looking church fairly regularly whenever we go into the city.
Each time we do I keep reminding myself that I’ve been meaning to stop and take a few shots because of those attention-getting blue doors.
Recently I finally did take a few minutes to explore it a little closer.
You can see bare pavement and even a little grass in some of these shots because they were taken a few days before this week’s latest Snow-mageddon.
I wasn’t able to find out much about this place other than it was built in 1949-50 and is one of several bilingual Catholic churches in the Lanaudière region northeast of Montréal.
In fact a full bilingual website for a Catholic church in Québec is somewhat rare, but this part of Mascouche Heights used to have a high percentage of English speaking residents.
I’m not sure how well those bells are holding up to being so exposed to the elements year round.
I did find some older pics online where the trim and doors were a reddish brown colour.
I’m not sure when they decided to repaint using this funky blue, but I gotta say that I do like it a lot 🙂
As always I thank you for stopping by.
