Description :
From the division of the parish of the Immaculate Conception, Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs welcomes its first priest June 19, 1938. "He was only 32 years. He inherited the wonking and poor part ofthe city ... We were still in the economic crisis ... The priest Pichette quickly became a renowned preacher, administrator, pastor and builder. "(From "Un 50e à Edmundston" by Bishop Gérard Dionne, souvenir book of the parish).
After fifteen years in a temporary church, nowadays the Community Center Godbout, the solemn blessing of the present church took place December 10, 1953.
