We were walking by this enormous church & taken by its size and the workers stripping paint off the front door, we decided to go inside. Inside we found a magnificently decorated church with beautiful gilded altar, inspiring windows with an outstanding pipe organ in the choir loft topped by a statue of St Cecelia. We talked to one of the guides and were saddened to learn this once enormous vibrant parish had dwindled to 100 communicants each weekend. Throughout the church, confessionals had been turned into display cases for artifacts & photos from the parish's 150 yr history documenting the generations who had worked so hard to build this enormous structure. It was very nice to hear that the government of Canada was committed to preserving its religious landmarks.
