Study Session 2013 - Quebec City

The week we were together flew by, mainly because we were taking so much in! There are 29 churches in the old town, so they were an important part of our trip exploring history. Especially the stitching that the Ursuline Nuns were famous for.

The Holy Trinity church, one of the few Anglican...

The Ursuline Chapel...

The altar inside the Ursuline Chapel, the nuns are famous for their gilding of gold over wooden sculptures...

Marie de l'Incarnation - moved to Canada from France in 1639 to set up a girl's school - the first in North America...

A typical street in the lower Old Town...

The lovely roof lines of the Chateau Frontenac, a Canadian Pacific Railway hotel built around the turn of the century. (Open the link to read about the many across Canada.)
