Seven new churches for the Belltail Walk
SHERBROOKE – The tourist event The Bell Tower will be back this fall. On October 19th and 20th, seven new churches will welcome tourists who will enjoy free guided tours.
The activity aims to highlight the religious heritage of the territory of the Archdiocese of Sherbrooke.
The activities proposed by each church will aim to highlight the characteristics that make each of them so unique. Whether through their unique architecture, artwork or unique pieces, each church will tell you its story, a press release said.
To promote these beautiful treasures, each church will be presented thanks to a text available on our website as well as in a capsule of one minute, available via Facebook and YouTube. The Maison du cinéma de Sherbrooke is collaborating again this year on the event by projecting on the big screen the advertising of 30 seconds of the Walk of the Bells.
The temples to visit for this second edition are Sainte-Anne-de-la-Rochelle Church Sainte-Anne, Saint-Bibiane Church of Richmond, Saint-Esprit Church of Sherbrooke, Saint-François Church -Xavier de Saint-François-Xavier-de-Brompton, the Saint-Hippolyte de Wotton church, the Saint-Théophile de Racine church and the archbishop’s chapel.
Via the website of the archdiocese of Sherbrooke, visitors have access to programming, it adds.
In addition, an exhibition of photos will be presented at the Basilica-Cathedral Saint-Michel. From September 29, at Saint Michael’s Day, the works produced by photographer Marcel Morin will be accessible to visitors.
The exhibited works, offered free of charge by the artist, will be sold as part of a silent auction that runs from Sunday, September 29 to Sunday, October 20. The funds raised will go to the Amen Saint-Michel Fund dedicated to the restoration, conservation and enhancement of the cathedral basilica and the Archbishop’s Palace of Sherbrooke.
