[194-?]. - Négatif représentant l'évêché de Gaspé. Cette maison a été construite dans les années 1770 par Felix O'Hara, ce qui en fait la plus ancienne maison patrimoniale de la Gaspésie. Elle a ensuite appartenu à Duncan McCallum, au ministre anglican Francis de la Mare et aux compagnies Elias Collas et Robin, Jones and Whitman. En 1931, elle est achetée par Mgr François-Xavier Ross, qui l'agrandit et la déménage sur son site actuel, au 172 rue Jacques-Cartier à Gaspé. En 1942, elle devient la résidence de l'êvêque du diocèse. Pour en savoir plus: Mélanie Dassylva, chargée de projet. "Sur les traces de l'histoire de Gaspé".

Last year I acquired a zuchetto or biretta from a private collection that was once worn by Bishop Paul Bernier as Bishop of the Diocese of Gaspe’. I’m not Catholic however I am impressed with the life of the Archbishop , his family background and his achievements during his lifetime. I’ve no interest in writing an article but do wish to attach some history to a shadow box and it’s contents and would appreciate approval to legally thieve photographs from the internet such as the Bishops Residence to add to the information I’ve acquired online. I’ve been an ardent collector of antiques and during the past three decades, religious objects of the Catholic Church which I display with reverence. During the past decade my collecting has turned to rosaries and intensive reading of the traditions of the Church, the Saints, the prayers and the history provided by the Church on the Internet. I’ve discovered that history was imperative in creating laws and traditions in my Canada that have been responsible for my safety and security for more than eight decades. This current project is an adventure that will in probability be passed to to some function of the Church to inspire someone else of one man’s efforts to improve the world through knowledge and a devotion to education and service beyond his comfort zone.

I will respect what ever you decide and I do thank you for your consideration. Although my home is in Calgary, I have spent time in Quebec though unfortunately not in the beautiful city of Rimouski ‘but’ I have travelled it’s streets with the Google Street Cam.

Kindest regards…

Mon père habitait cette maison lors de son déménagement. Elle était habité par la famille de l’agronome André Paris à cette époque.
