St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church – Carleton Place, Ontario – First mass was on Christmas Day, 1884. Photo 2002.
So what happened to the rectory you see in the back beside St. Mary’s Church? Photo- Dave Young
Did you know they moved the manse that used to be part of St. Mary’s to a location on Franktown Road in 1993?

Sandra Hurdis Finigan-– I was working at Giant Tiger that day. I remember them coming in to tell us they were shutting off the power because I think they had to take the lines down as the house passed. We had to write down what customers were buying and use a calculator. I don’t know who entered it all in later but I’m glad it wasn’t me. We all stood at the Windows to watch the house drive by.
