A Church Devoted To Climbing

“A Roman Catholic Church in Gatineau, Que., is facing a rocky future, but the archbishop of the diocese feels that's not such a bad thing. The church was on the market for two years before a recent offer was accepted from the developer, who plans to turn it into the rock-climbing centre.”

Climb the walls and get closer to God?

Parishioners at St-Raymond Roman Catholic Church in Gatineau will celebrate their last mass Sunday.

Years ago, I went to a great party at a former church in the Powderhorn neighborhood. The church had been converted into housing; still, it felt odd to be drinking up in the choir loft!
