Church - Our Lady of the Snows - Fogo

This historic Roman Catholic church in Fogo was built in 1887. To the left one can see the oldest one room school in Newfoundland ( 1888 ). Both buildings look much as they did a century ago. The schoolhouse still has its old texts and desks, a potbelly stove, an old style organ and other period furnishings.

Lovely photo, great sky. I've never been to Fogo although I lived and taught in Change Islands for a year...close.

Is there a number for the church? I would like to give them a call, but the number I got online is disconnected
