Taken on our way back from Montreal last week.

Discovered this is in Saint-Pierre-de-V√©ronne-√*-Pike-River which supposedly has a population of 601. All our trips to Montreal over the years I've admired this church standing so tall in the middle of the flat plain. Finally photographed it this time.

Very nice. The architecture on the lower part of the building and the name suggest a Roman Catholic. However, the architecture of the towers suggests something else. I am not sure what that is. How much do you know about this church?

Thank you.

Cal, unfortunately, I know nothing of it. I figured once I got home I could do some surfing and find something, but haven't yet. It is on Ch Du Moline in the town mentioned. I'll agree the bottom portion looks Catholic. The top to me almost looks Russian or Greek Orthodox.

I only had one lens with me when I took this. I zoomed in on the black plaque by the front door and it seems to say Eglise Catholique Saint Pierre de Veronne 1907 - 2006.
