Door 12 – Lochiel Church

It is believed that church services have been conducted in this little church since the early 1800’s although church records only date back to 1863 – that’s considered quite old in Canada; we have such a  baby history.

Attendance at St. Alexander’s Catholic Church has declined over the years to the point it has been in danger of closing.  The parishioners have worked hard to bring people back to this little church on a side road in Lochiel Township in eastern Ontario.

I stopped by on a glorious fall day just before Thanksgiving when happenstance would have it that someone was in setting up and invited me inside.
