CHAPELLE SUR LE LAC - 2009
Visitors to Sainte-Adèle have a soft spot for this little church beside Lac Rond along the montée Chantecler. It was built in 1952 on land donated by Mr. A.B. Thompson, owner of the Chantecler, with the assistance of the United Churches of Canada. The first church service took place on December 14, 1952 before a congregation of very religious families. The first stone was placed by the Reverend J.I. Mackay. Furniture was crafted by local workers, members of the congregation and their friends. This little church, which serves all Protestant dominations, is home to a magnificent stained-glass window by Guido Nincheri. Its first residing minister was the Reverend Hugh A. Rose. Since 1970, three churches have joined together: Sainte-Adèle, Morin-Heights and Shawbridge.
