Église Saint Cuthbert, Lanaudière, Québec
On a recent weekend drive through the countryside we visited the village of Saint Cuthbert in the Lanaudière region northeast of Montréal.
The royal proclamation giving the go-ahead to build a church in this rural farming area was signed in 1765.
As if this case so often in the our part of the world, the town was built up around the church.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find out too much about its history or construction, but it is fairly typical of the kind of huge stone church found in rural Québec, built bigger than the population of the entire town, with the intention of draw in worshipers from all over the region.
Here are some of my favorite shots from this doorscursion:
With its protective glass case causing so much reflective glare, it was almost impossible to get a decent shot of the wooden sculpture of the town and church’s namesake 😦
The neighbouring Rectory sure is some fancy-pants place to live.
And if anyone is interested, the old Seminary across from the church is being converted into a retirement home, though I think they’re gonna need to do something about those missing stairs 😉
As always I thank you for stopping in 🙂
