When Father Charles Chalifoux arrived in the small village of St. Vincent in 1933, the community was in the midst of the Great Depression. Father Chalifoux inspired the community to construct a parish church and himself began to create furnishings for the church with wood from shipping boxes.  The result of Father Chalifoux's dedicated woodwork is a unique and outstanding example of sacred art craft in Alberta and Western Canada.  Read more about Father Chalifoux in the featured article.
