My hotel in Radisson, QC

My hotel in Radisson, QC.

After two days of driving, experiencing the James Bay Road, and eventually falling asleep under the blanket of Northern Lights, I awoke Tuesday morning excited and raring to go. I was to meet Roger, my contact, at his business in Chisasibi, a First Nations community about 100 km west of Radision, QC.

St. John's Anglican Church

In 2001, this incredible, old church burned almost to the ground. The committee faced three choices. First, to place a monument on the location of the church and move on. Second, to build a new, more modern church. Third, and most expensively, to build the church as an exact replica of the original. Obviously from the pictures, they chose the third, and most difficult option.

Christ the King Church (Sudbury)

The idea for this church began in 1917, in recognition of the growing number of English-speaking parishioners in Sudbury. However, many construction slow-downs by factors including World War I delayed the laying of the corner stone until June 17, 1928. Construction would continue to be hampered when the right wall blew out in 1928 as the result of a major windstorm.

On September 29, 1929, the church was finally dedicated and blessed by Bishop Scollard.
