Church of Berthier-sur-Mer

Berthier-sur-Mer ( Chaudière-Appalaches )

Church of Berthier-sur-Mer

This church about 37 m long by 15 m wide is built in the typical neoclassical churches nearby. Interior fully wooden enables high quality sound. There is a Casavant organ ten games installed in 1929. Another feature is a three-masted model suspended from the ceiling of the nave in 1873. It was donated by a group of sailors from the village to beg for protection of St. Joseph when they took the sea, inspired by the maritime tradition of ex-voto.

Metal roofing laid in 1908, is one of the rare examples of metal roofing to the Canadian in the village of Berthier.

The seigniory of Bellechasse or Berthier was granted October 29, 1672 Sieur Alexandre Berthier, captain of Carignan. As it bought the lordship of Berthier, top, 3 October 1673, the Sieur Raudin, he gave the name to that of Berthier top of Bellechasse and that of the bottom. However, it still says the lordship or Bellechasse Berthier. Thus we Berthier Berthier down and up. The islets Bellechasse, located vis-à-vis the lordship are designated on the map of Champlain, drawn in 1629, under the title of “islands of hunting.” The name became Bellechasse, in the sequel, due, no doubt, beautiful and abondate hunting we are doing.
