Re­li­gious her­itage sites on agenda of up­com­ing meet­ing

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Way's Mills

A sym­po­sium con­cern­ing the re­li­gious her­itage in the Coat­i­cook MRC, called “Par Chemins et parvis” will be held on April 18th, from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, at the Union Church of Way’s Mills, 2063 Chemin du Ruis­seau in Barn­ston West.

The day has been planned to look at the fu­ture of the churches and ceme­ter­ies on the Coat­i­cook MRC ter­ri­tory. It will also be an op­por­tu­nity to learn more about the changes in us­age and fi­nanc­ing of th­ese her­itage sites and in mo­bi­liz­ing cit­i­zens in trans­for­ma­tion projects.

This sym­po­sium has been or­ga­nized by the re­li­gious her­itage com­mit­tee of the Ta­ble de con­cer­ta­tion cul­turelle de la MRC de Coat­i­cook (TCCC) and the Coat­i­cook MRC. It is made pos­si­ble thanks to a cul­tural devel­op­ment agree­ment be­tween the Coat­i­cook MRC and the Que­bec Min­istry of Cul­ture and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions in 2015.

Peo­ple in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing this event can call 819 849-7083, ex­ten­sion 228, to reg­is­ter.

The Barn­ston Bap­tist Church is a re­li­gious her­itage site that was saved by the lo­cal Fran­co­phone com­mu­nity.
