Create an itinerary including The Stone Church
See stone walls, and the bell tower of The Stone Church, a Catholic church built in 1902. French built the church in early 20th century, as they retreated to the town. Because of that, the church stands in the heart of the town, at the place meaningful spiritually to Catholics. For building it, they used lime, molasses, and sand. When you stand in front, you’ll see brilliantly designed bell tower, with a big cross. Inside, you can see glass windows with images of Christ’s life.

  • A very small church along the road. When we were here, there was a worship session going on. Pretty crowded. Could not get in but only view from exterior. This is more of an iconic attraction...

  • Went to the Sunday mass here. It was the children’s mass! Kids did the readings very sweetly and the front pews were reserved for them.
