All Saints Anglican Church

The All Saints Anglican Church situated at 7325 Ouimet St. was constructed in 1949. The top photo was taken in 1959 and the bottom photo was taken recently. The presbytary is on the left. This church is also up for sale as are many other churches in Verdun. The different religious communities are looking into sharing the same church to solve their financial problems as was done with the Notre Dame de la Garde Church. Quite an upheaval going on these days in the religious communities.

The church looks attractive & well preserved. Hopefully it isn't torn down for redevelopment.
I don't remember a street called Ouimet, so I'll be looking it up on a map. I assume St Clement's Anglican Church is still operating as a church. That's were we took the vows 48 years ago!...Diane

Thanks Les, I remember Crawford Park as the place where a couple of my Third Ave friends moved to. Very upmarket at the time!.....Diane

I now have confirmation that the All Saints Anglican Church on Ouimet Street is closing definately.
Another one of those small Verdun churches disapearing from the map. However, our society (SHGV) is recording all these important facts for our archives.
