Built in 1894, abandoned when the Parish built St-Remi on Dumaurier Ave. The old St Bonaventure burned to the ground in 1966. see Historique de notre Paroisse.
In 1922 some of the interior scenes for the silent movie “The Man from Glengarry” were shot inside St Stephen’s.
All three of Britannia’s older churches moved to within a few hundred meters of one another in Queensway Terrace North, probably due to a combination property values (ie cost) at the time and proximity to their congregations.
