This black and white photo (taken circa June 1947) is the earliest representation of St. Joseph’s Chapel with the congregation gathered outside.

On Dec. 1, St. Joseph’s Chapel in Shannon marked its 75th anniversary. Erected in 1944 on land leased from the Quebec Power Company for $1 a year, the chapel was a project spearheaded by the parishioners.
