Place Description

This French Gothic style church is a landmark in Kinkora. It has a cruciform plan with a sacristy. It also features a dome over the centre of the transept, the only Harris church to do so. The rectangular nave has a clerestory above and side aisles. A square tower with circular spire and four turrets rises from the left side of the facade. A shorter circular tower with conical roof is located on the right side of the facade. Bargeboard trim on the gable roof features drilled holes, a characteristic common in many Harris designs. Harris also was involved in the design of the parish house, which stands near the church.
