OUR CHURCH

 

Saint Mary's Church is a Roman Catholic Parish of the Diocese of Peterborough, in Ontario, Canada.

It was founded in the late 1800's and the present building was erected in 1900 when the previous building underwent a fire during the night of Christmas Eve to Christmas Morning, in December 1899.
 
This present structure, as it stands was built in only eleven months, for the price, at the time, of $22,000.
