Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? Among Catholics, It is said that reciting one thousand Hail Marys on December 24 would ensure obtaining a special favour. While preparing the réveillon for Christmas Eve, therefore, mothers would recite their one thousand Hail Marys without fail for they always had a small favour to ask the Virgin Mary on behalf of one of their children or their husband.

Saint-François-de-la-Rivière-du-Sud, Québec, Canada (Saint-François-de-Sales-de-la-Rivière-du-Sud) - The Pierre-Laurent-Bédard pavilion owes its name to the parish priest who built it.

Built in 1763, this is the oldest building still standing.

By its architectural form, the first presbytery of our parish, is similar to the mode of construction of the French regime. Constructed of stones embedded in the cement, it is covered with a roof with double slope, pierced by two dormers on each side.
