We stopped by this church on a free afternoon. The view from the top of the front steps is beautiful and is only matched by the interior of this beautiful church. It is well maintained and very welcoming. Recommended

We enjoyed our stop at Saint Peter's in Cheticamp, and the little museum was an interesting walk through. It was nice to be able to stop, pray, and light a few candles for a friend.

You just walk in and experience the calm and appeasing experience. The organ is just beautiful, take time to admire the architecture and the vues it offers on the second floor!

Stones were cut on the protective barrier island, across the river. They were hauled across the frozen water and assembled on the town's shore. This is the largest church for many miles. It dominates the shoreline of Cheticamp. There is amble parking.

Located right in Cheticamp and open to the public. A very airy and light church. Downstairs are lots of old photos and there is a memorial that has a hooked rug photo that looks like a real photo .

Yes, it is open during the weekdays. I believe it opens at 10am, but not sure. We got there on a weekday around 10:30am and it was open. Not sure what time it closes.
