On this day in Our Islands History

In 1960, the people of Grindstone created the parish of Saint Andre and appointed Abby Lionel Lafrance as the Priest in Charge. The construction of the church began on April 26th, 1967. The cost of the construction was around $345,000. It was necessary to take out a loan so that the church could be built within ten years.
