Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- The upper church was destroyed by the Halifax Harbour Explosion of December 1917 just after they had ordered 2/14 Op. 723; Op. 723 went instead to Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré and the congregation settled into the basement church, where 2/6 Op. 930 was installed in 1922; the upper church was completed in 1961.
