The symbols of Mile End churches
Kevin Cohalan, of the Société d’histoire du Plateau Mont-Royal, will give a lavishly illustrated presentation on the symbols used in Mile End churches, with a focus on the Church of the Ascension. Sleeping soldiers, Greek letters, knights in shining armour, lambs—he will unlock the codes that were clear to church-goers of the past but almost forgotten today! Presentation in French, bilingual question period.

Mile End’s Religious Heritage
Walking tour led by Joshua Wolfe and Yves Desjardins
Mile End’s religious heritage has been a witness to the remarkable diversity of the neighbourhood. A number of buildings have had several uses: Protestant churches have become synagogues–and vice versa–while others have been transformed into community centres.
Travel through time with us to discover the links that unite the past with the present!
