Saint-Zéphirin Church

The church Saint-Zephirin, work of the Architect Heldwige Laberge, was built in 1930 and blessed by Louis Rhéaume in 1931. The style of the church is half-Renaissance, half-Romanesque. In 1944, the priest Louis Caron began the interior decoration, He called on a renowned artist, Albert Gilles, who made the brass we find inside the church and was responsible for the windows made by the House Maumejean from Paris. The work spanned over a period of more than 14 years. The entrance doors, of repousse copper, weigh ½ ton each. In 1958, the factory proceeded to the repair of the facade of the church. The fire of 1961 was an opportunity to add marble on the walls and a mural, a work of Walter Del Mistro. Stations of the cross are made of copper pushed against a background of crushed eggshells. In 1962, the parish acquired a new organ of Casavant Frères limited of Saint-Hyacinthe.
