Re: St. Anne de Beaupry Cathedral

In Reply to: St. Anne de Beaupry Cathedral by P.Baribeau of 1317

The land under the basilica at Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré was donated to the church by Etienne de Lessard in 1658. This was a two arpents portion on the westerly section of his farm that he was not using. There is a plaque confirming this on the grounds at Ste-Anne. For anyone interested in reading that plaque,... as you leave the fronts doors of the basilica, look a bit off to you right, across the lawns toward the road.
