Here's St. John the Baptist Catholic Church following restorations. Father Albin Arsenault oversaw a six-year restoration of this historic church - from the steeple to the altar. He took the approach of fixing, repairing, restoring one project at a time and step-by-step with the enthusiasm of his parishioners achieved amazing results. Amoung their greatest achievements - no debt - all paid for as the process continued!!
Old Photo of St. John the Baptist Church
Note the textures of the exterior building materials.
The original altar which had been removed/demolished in the 1970s
The New Altar, unveiled on June 28, 2009 - a replica of the original. I prepared the drawings from old photos and with the amazing skills of craftsmen John Richards and Lionel DesRoches the project was a great success.
The interior colours were based on themes of St. John the Baptist.
Looking towards the rear of the sanctuary to balcony and organ.
