The church of Saint-Pierre-de-La Vernière, in the Magdalen Islands, is currently undergoing a makeover that will restore it to its pristine luster of yesteryear. Since mid-June, major work has been underway to restore the exterior cladding of the building nicknamed the Cathedral of the Islands, one of the most imposing wooden churches in America.
