Jeff Scofield on September 03, 2020:

Eglise Sacre-Coeur is the heart of Welland's Frenchtown, a community filled with French-speaking people who came to the city from northern Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick; the console was moved at some point to the front nave floor on the right side; the factory specs originally had Eglise St-Antoine, Niagara Falls, Ontario - that is crossed out and the Welland Church is handwritten in.
