One of the most architecturally impressive churches in rural Canada, St. Peter Celestine, stands atop a hill in Pakenham, Ontario. Built in 1892, this Roman Catholic church features a style of architecture influenced by French and Italian Churches and the unique style of French Canadian catholic churches. St peter Celestine is as lovely inside as it is out with beautiful Italianette decorations. Although undergoing a significant restoration for its hundredth anniversary in 1992, the church stands today almost unchanged from its original appearance. (Pakenham, Ontario, Canada)
