Photographer's Note

Being temporarily sidelined after an encounter with a wasp, I must put off shooting in Mennonite country for a few days. Instead, I bring you another of the churches taken in the past.
The beauty of this church and the peacefullness of the town as I found it belies the terrible Solar Temple Cult tragedy that took place there in 1997.
St-Casimir (elevation: 90 ft) is a small village of about 1800 people in the province of Québec, Canada. It is located on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River, half way between Québec City and Trois-Rivières. It was founded in 1836 by people who came from Ste-Anne-de-la-Pérade following to the east the Rivière Ste-Anne. The name of St-Casimir was given in honor of Mr. Casimir Déry, a notary who paid for the construction of the church, which is in the top 10 of the most beautiful churches in the province of Québec.
