Radville – Holy Family

Radville – Holy Family

With a large number of catholic families, mostly French and Belgian descent, settling around Radville a church was in great need. The first Catholic church was built in 1912 on the site of the fairgrounds, land that was originally purchased from C.N.R. In 1913 the church was moved close to its present location. It served as a church and rectory until 1914 when a new church was built. In 1915 the parish donated land to build a separate school to the Sisters of Charity of Saint Louis. 

Along with Father Prud’homme the first board was formed with Joe Ayotte, Donat Dionne, T. Morrissette, Dr. O’Shea, M. Dandanault, and J.A. Saindon. Several priests served in Radville, until Father Yandeau’s influential post beginning in 1939. He was the driving force behind the formation of the Credit Union in 1943, the arrival of the Sisters of Saint Joseph, the construction of the community hospital in 1948, the expansion of the separate school, the Marian home addition in 1956, the new rectory in 1958 and the building of the new church in 1949. The new church had a bowling alley, modern kitchen, and recreation hall. The church was blessed by Archbishop O’Neill October 4, 1950. With the help of the current Parish council, in 2018, the rectory has undergone extensive renovations, and parts of the church have also been renovated.

The C.W.L. was formed in 1931, but was later disbanded The Knights of Columbus were formed in 1948,  temporarily disbanded but has since became a strong supporter of the church and parish.
