About the film:

This film explores the history and significance of the oldest Catholic parish in Ontario. Founded in 1767 as a unique Huron and French-Canadian community, the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption has been the cornerstone of Christianity in all southwestern Ontario. Having witnessed many transformations over its long history, the parish continues to be a vibrant Christian presence in the Windsor area and in the entire Diocese of London.
Built in 1845, the church is a stunning example of Canadian Gothic Revival and an important symbol of Christianity in this part of the world – an irreplaceable piece of Canadian Christian heritage. The Church's history of survival and change continues today with the consolidation of neighbouring parishes and the closing of the historic church due to serious structural problems. The Basilian Fathers continue to minister to the people of the Assumption Parish community. This documentary celebrates the past, present, and future of this remarkable parish – its people, its church, and their impact on the world around them.
