The first church in Métabetchouan, in the Lac-Saint-Jean region, was built in 1870. The current impressive Saint-Jérôme de Métabetchouan church was blessed in 1928, replacing the previous church.
The size of a cathedral, the red granite church with two bell towers are inspired by the Gothic pen, and its interior impresses in more ways than one. Indeed, it has three paintings (possibly by Charles Huot), a statue of Saint Jerome carved in wood, the altar of the Holy Reserve carved for the previous church, a collection of statues nestled harmoniously on the top of the walls, a colossal Czechoslovakian glass chandelier and the organ from Casavant Frères, installed in 1928.
