St. Peter Celestine Church in Pakenham is widely known among connoisseurs of heritage architecture for its fine building and in particular for its superb original interior decor, which survives intact from over a century ago.

Professionally restored in 1992, this is one of the 3 most beautiful churches in the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall! It is one of only 3 Canadian churches known to retain Classic Italianate decoration in trompe l’oeil and faux marbré technique. A striking feature of the nave is the original pulpit, built in the form of a huge chalice, heavily ornamented.
