History of St. Joseph Parish Southwest Margaree NS

The parish of St. Joseph’s occupies both sides of the South West Margaree River and extends from East Lake Ainslie through Scotsville, Upper Margaree, Gillisdale and South West Margaree to Margaree Forks, Coady Road and Dunvegan.

The first chapel was built in 1832 and was called St. Andrew’s. Its size was 40’ by 30’ by 18’. The chapel was never heated during the winter but would always be filled with a crowd of devout worshippers. Until 1873 all the priests, with one exception (Fr. John Chisholm), had their home in Broad Cove.

In 1871, a new church, 70’ by 42’ by 28’ was built and called St. Joseph’s. The glebe house was built in 1888 replacing the previous one which was destroyed by fire. In 1873, South West Margaree separated from Broad Cove with Fr. Joseph Macleod as pastor. The church remained until it was destroyed by fire in February of 1967 after ninety-six years. The fire started during Mass. The celebrant was Fr. Gerald MacKenzie. He was a curate at the time. Fr. Roberts was the Parish priest.

The heat from the fire was so intense that it melted the church bell. The bell was cast for St. Joseph’s Church in 1897. It weighed 1200 pounds. Several articles were saved including the organ. Before the organ was purchased the musical instrument used by the choir was a violin played by Malcolm H. Gillis, a noted violinist.

A new church similar to the present one was opened in 1970 but was destroyed by an arsonist’s fire in 1977. The parish has gone through some rough times but has persevered and has built two churches since 1967. The present church was opened in 1980.

The parish of St. Joseph’s had a resident pastor until 1995 when it was amalgamated with St. Patrick’s Parish under St. Michael’s Parish in East Margaree. St. Joseph’s Parish consists of approximately 100 families.

The power of Christian prayer Learn to know Christ
Learn to know Christ and him crucified. Learn to sing to him, and say, Lord Jesus, you are my righteousness, I am your sin. You have taken upon yourself what is mine and given me what is yours. You have become what you were not so that I might become what I was not.
