St-Raymond Catholic Cemetery

St. Raymond is one of the largest towns in Portneuf  county.  The cemetery is located across the St. Ann River about a kilometre up the road.  There are two cemeteries across the street from one another.  The Catholic Church was founded in 1844.  The cemetery, before it was moved, was located near the chapel, also on the river bank. The first burial took place on 28 September 1844.

The first church was lost in a fire on 10 January 1858. A small granite church was built to replace it. However, after 40 years, despite successive improvements, the second church became too small for the ever increasing population. In 1900 began the construction of a third church south of the second one. The third church, still in use today, is a neoclassical work of art. It was built with granite from Riviere-a-Pierre.  The first mass was celebrated in 1902.

The Irish Catholic population located in the south end of the Bourg Louis Seigniory, had no church of their own and belonged to either the St. Raymond of St. Basile parish.  The services were given in French, with exceptions being made in English for special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, and funerals.
