Artifact of the Week. Silver Jubilee Reverend Father J.B. MacLeod, St. Raphael’s West, 1945.

scan0011This is an example of some of the religious memorabilia in the collection at the Cornwall Community Museum.  Acquired in 2003.

Little is known of this priest. It appears that he was “on loan” from a neighbouring diocese.  Diocesan records do mention a Fr. J. Benedict MacLeod at St. Joseph’s in Lancaster and as curate at Nativity in Cornwall and that he returned to his home diocese of Montreal on April 23, 1921.
