This Georgian Stone House of National Significance to Catholics. The charity group Glengarry Fencibles Trust has rescued the home of Ontario’s first Catholic bishop, Alexander Macdonell. From his house (1808) in St Raphael’s, he served the entire Catholic Church in Upper Canada, built churches and schools throughout the province including the first seminary. This amazing man was military chaplain (Glengarry Fencibles), politician, mentor to Ontario’s first premier and, as Bishop of Kingston (1826-40), he founded Regiopolis College and the Catholic Register. He laid the foundation for Ontario’s Catholic Schools. Restoration of this historic site as an interpretive centre has begun, with Parks Canada support.
