 Loss of a community

The Kahnawake Mohawks were known for their skill and agility in high steel construction. But in 1907, they were hardest hit by the collapse of the Quebec Bridge. (by Susan Goldenberg — Posted November 29, 2017)

A Mass at the Mission of Saint Francis Xavier will be celebrated in commemoration of the 33 ironworkers of Kahnawake who lost their lives in the tragedy.

     Mass followed by prayers at the Memorial site dedicated to the 33 Mohawk metallurgists who died on the Quebec Bridge on August 29, 1907.
    N.B. The Kahnawake non-residents are required to register by Thursday, August 27. Given the importance of the event, it is very likely that places will be very limited. The people of Kahnawake have priority over any mass.
