St. Columbkille Parish Doors Open Simcoe County

St. Columbkille Parish

St. Columbkille Parish in Uptergrove was founded in 1855; it was the first Catholic parish in the area. The original frame church was torn down and the present brick edifice constructed in 1905. This beautiful Gothic structure stands high on a hill and can easily be viewed by all when driving on Highway 12 east from Orillia.
