Quebec: St. Andrews Presbyterian Church

Conveniently located next door to the Morrin Center, and across the street from our hotel was St. Andrews Presbyterian Church -- an English speaking Presbyterian Church. Had we been in Quebec City on a Sunday, it would have been the perfect place for us to worship. Ahh... next time. 

The church is laid out in a semi-circle. Pastor Katherine told us from the top of the pulpit, she can see everyone. No one is safe from her on a Sunday morning! A typical service only has about 40 people, so today they sit a lot closer together than in past years.

The church has a museum, which Pastor Katherine insisted on showing us. They are very proud of their Scottish heritage. Bagpipers meet there on Thursday for rehearsals (not sure how we missed hearing that from our hotel room!). 

The church, and the Morrin Center were both featured in Louise Penny's book "Bury Your Dead." The book is on my to read list. I'm looking forward to reading the book after having visited the places cited in it.
