L'église-souvenir
Un témoignage durable

L'église-souvenir représente l'attachement profond
du peuple acadien au lieu historique national du
Canada de Grand-Pré.

Construite en 1922 grâce à des fonds recueillis lors
d'une campagne de financement lancée auprès
des communautés acadiennes de toute l'Amérique
du Nord, l'église-souvenir symbolise l'essence du
nationalisme acadien et le désir profondément
enraciné de commémorer la tragédie de la
Déportation.

L'architecte René Fréchet de Moncton, au Nouveau-
Brunswick, prépare les plans qui s'inspirent de
l'architecture normande du XVII siècle.

Le style n'est pas une copie de l'église originale d'avant la Déportation dont on ne connaît pas l'apparence. A partir de fouilles archéologiques entreprises en 2001, il semble que l'église-souvenir soit en effet construite à peu près où se trouvait la première église paroissiale de Grand-Pré.


Memorial Church
An Enduring Tribute
The Memorial Church expresses the Acadians'
strong attachment to Grand-Pré National Historic
Site



of Canada

Built in 1922, with funds raised from Acadian
communities throughout North America, the
Memorial Church symbolizes the spirit of Acadian
nationalism and the deep-seated desire to
commemorate the tragedy of the Deportation.

Architect René Fréchet of Moncton, New Brunswick,
drew up the plans for the church, which reflect
Normandy-style architecture of the 1700s.

The design does not duplicate the original pre-Deportation church, whose appearance is unknown. Archaeological excavations in 2001 suggest the Memorial Church was indeed built approximately where the original Grand Pré parish church stood.
