Neighborhood: Croix-de-Pierre/Fontaine-Lestang
Overview

Built by the Croix-de-Pierre neighborhood in the late 19th century, this church is tall, massive, and slightly strange looking since it is without a bell tower. The bells actually hang from the façade corner. However, the large neo-gothic parallelepiped is not without charm. The single nave features a few beautiful original stained glass windows depicting the lives of saint François and Joseph, stations of the cross and a richly decorated, carved wooden pulpit of mysterious origin. This local church brings together an active congregation, who participate in the choir and the bible reading group.
