The Church of the Most Holy Sacrament closed “for security reasons”
The Church of the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Sainte-Foy Road was closed precipitately Monday night. The religious building is not safe.
The decision was made “very quickly”, confirmed to the Sun the director of communications of the diocese of Quebec, Jasmin Lemieux-Lefebvre. The receipt of an expert opinion forced the hand of the assembly assembly of the parish of Blessed Dina-Bélanger.
“[Monday], the places of worship was open,” says Lemieux-Lefebvre. “At 4.30 pm Mass was in the church.”
On his Facebook page, the parish said: “The assembly of the parish of Blessed Dina-Belanger decided last Monday, July 22, to close for safety reasons the church of Saint-Sacrement for a indeterminate period.”
“A meeting of parishioners will be convened in the coming days to discuss the situation and the next deadlines in this issue. In the meantime, the liturgical celebrations held at the Saint-Sacrement church will continue at the Saint-Charles Garnier and Saint-Michel de Sillery churches. ”
A press conference will be held in the afternoon on Tuesday.
Note that the parking lot of the church is also closed.
