Collingwood has some beautiful churches.

According to the 2001 census, about 1 in 4 local people did not identify themselves as having any particular religious affiliation however, that means about 75% of people do.  Church life plays a prominent role in society and perhaps more so in small communities.  The census reported that close to 16% of the Collingwood population identified themselves as being Roman Catholic and locally, that congregation is served by the beautiful St. Mary’s Church, “Our Lady of the Lake.”

According to Heritage Collingwood, the first Catholic Church in Collingwood was blessed in 1858 and was then located on Pine Street.  In 1888, the new church was built at the corner of Ontario and Elgin Streets where it still remains.  It’s a lovely building with a tall Church tower, arched windows and notable brickwork.  Incidentally, the land where it sits was donated by Mr. Thomas Long – the same family that donated the land for Collingwood’s present library at Second and Pine Streets.
