On April 26, 2021, St Mary Magdalene Church received a grant of $7,824.00 from the Québec Government program “Chauffez Vert”, administered by  Transition énergétique Québec. This financial assistance was used to offset the cost of replacing SMM’s oil-burning furnaces with electric furnaces. Thanks to the program “Chauffez vert”, SMM is no longer using fossil fuels to heat both the church sacristy and hall.
