        The first church (1840) was in a converted house. The current nio-Gothic wood chapel was was built on the new site in 1890 and consecrated on May 21 1891.   It is surrounded by a maple grove; its stained glass windows are particularly beautiful.  The Protestant cemetery is located on the road to Ste-Brigitt-de-Laval, located on the right side of a winding narrow rural road.  It dates of the very first period of settlement.
