La Société Saint-Pierre / Église Saint-Pierre

 1790-1990On September 27, 1790, His Excellency William MacCormick, Governor of the Province of Cape Breton, graciously and generously granted
7 000 acres of land at Chéticamp to our «Quatorze Vieux». By this
historical act, our ancestors, after long years of exile and suffering, became
full proprietors in their own right. In the year of Our Lord 1990,
with gratitude toward our benevolent Governor MacCormick, the people
of Chéticamp devotedly dedicate this plaque in memory of our courageous ancestors.In response to the menace of assimilation, La Société Saint-Pierre was founded under the motto "Dieu, Langue, Patrie," to promote the education of young Acadians in their mother tongue. Since the 70's, our Society has broadened its horizons to deal with all that concerns the status of the Acadians of Inverness County. On this 50th anniversary of our Society, we, the present membership, wish to honour our courageous founders as well as those responsible for its revival.
Saint Peter's Church is an achievement of Reverend Pierre Fiset who was Pastor of Chéticamp



from 1875 to 1909. A daring character, ever undaunted, his penetrating foresight wisely sensed where lay the future of Chéticamp. The people of Chéticamp, motivated by their alert staunch faith, unhesitatingly seconded his courageous zeal. In this year of grace 1993, the centenary of their church, gratefully the parishioners dedicate this Plaque to him in loving remembrance.
Francais:1790-1990Le 27 septembre 1790, Son Excellence William MacCormick, Gouverneur de la Province du Cap-Breton, devenait l'insigne bienfaiteur des Chéticantains en accordant à nos «Quatorze Vieux» une charte de 7 000 arpents de terre à Chéticamp. Après les longues années d'exil et de misères, nos ancêtres devenaient enfin propriétaires de plein droit. En cette année 1990, les Chéticantains, avec reconnaissance envers le Gouverneur MacCormick, dédient cette plaque à la mémoire de nos courageux ancêtres. En réponse à la menace de l'assimilation, La Société Saint-Pierre a été fondée sous le pseudo « Dieu, Langue, Patrie », dans le but de promouvoir l'éducation des jeunes Acadiens dans leur langue maternelle. Depuis les années 70's, notre société a élargi ses horizons pour traiter de tout ce qui concerne le statut des Acadiens du comté d'Inverness. En ce 50e anniversaire de notre société, nous, les membres actuels, désirons



rendre hommage aux courageux fondateurs de notre Société ainsi qu'aux responsables de sa relance.Notre Église Saint-Pierre est l'oeuvre du Révérend Pierre Fiset, curé de Chéticamp de 1875 à 1909. Entreprenant, sans jamais se laisser intimider, dans sa sagesse et sa perspicacité, il avait prévu jour devenir. Les Chéticantains, à la foi vivante à et sa Chéticamp devait un profonde, n'hésitèrent pas nobles efforts. En cette année du centenaire de l'église, 1993, les paroissiens reconnaissants, sont heureux de lui dédier cette plaque en in affectueux souvenir.
