A Tour of the Border Churches of Frelighsburg and Saint-Armand

Frelighsburg, May 5th, 2009 - The Frelighsburg Historical and Patrimonial Society in concert with the Carrefour culturel de Saint-Armand have mapped out a tour of the border churches of Frelighsburg and Saint-Armand entitled Seven Steeples, Two Border Villages.

The 20 or so kilometre route, with departure points from either Frelighsburg or Saint-Armand, provides an opportunity for visitors to discover and appreciate the religious and architectural heritage of the border area of the southern part of Brome-Missisquoi County, from Frelighsburg to Saint-Armand, passing through the quaint villages of Pigeon Hill and Philipsburg. This rich heritage reflects the historical diversity of the English and French-speaking communities of the area and of their Catholic, Anglican and United Church buildings and artefacts.

As you make your way leisurely from village to village, taking in the outstanding natural beauty of the countryside, as you stroll through village streets, you will find at each church or chapel a panel explaining the circumstances of its construction, its history and its architectural features.

The churches and chapels of the tour include, in Frelighsburg, Bishop Steward Memorial of Holy Trinity church and St-François d’Assise Catholic church; in Pigeon Hill, St. James the Least Anglican church; in Saint-Armand, Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes Catholic church; and in Philipsburg, St-Philippe Catholic church, St. Paul Anglican and Philipsburg United Church.

This tour of the border churches, a rich voyage of discovery in itself, will open your eyes to the natural beauty of a region stretching from the foot of mount Pinnacle to the American border. This region is home to beautiful villages, proud of their rich Victorian architecture and of its New England influence.

You are cordially invited to the official launch of the Border Churches Tour on May 16th 2009 at 11 o’clock at the Freilighsburg Art Centre, Place de l’Hôtel-de-Ville.
