Description :
In every parish where there are church service and a spiritual community, there is no material realization that is more important to religion as a church. The Catholics of Saint-Jacques recognize this reality with Father Rossigol and the Father Gaétan Côté who is assigned to the parish in August 1990. Father Côté is in charge, among other tasks, to bring the successful completion to the construction of a new church, a project that started in 1987.
Only two years after priest Côté arrival, in April 1992, the construction of the church and a new rectory began. In the fall, everything is over and December 8 is the official opening of the church.
