QC churches to be demolished

Parish administrators have recently voted for the demolition of 2 Trois-Rivières, QC Roman Catholic churches pending the approval of the local Archbishop.
St-Philippe parish was founded in 1909 & St-François-d'Assise parish  in 1927 since there is no longer sufficient attendance to warrant their upkeep. It is possible that the land on which they stand will be sold & the churches will be replaced by apartment buildings or condominiums.
If you have ancestors from these parishes & you want to visit them, you should plan the trip for no later than mid 2011... It's always nice to be able to sit in the church pews where your distant relatives sat, where part of your history was lived...
