Name of object :

Bell of the Académie du Sacré-Cœur

This is the bell from the bell tower of St. Michael Church. When the City of Sorel acquired the church with the intention of turning it into a city hall, the bell was given to the Académie du Sacré-Coeur so it could be placed in the new bell tower, then under construction. In 1995, this bell was entrusted to the Corporation soreloise du patrimoine régional for conservation.
