St. Mary’s Apartment Restoration Project
About this project:
This historic property is located in Inverness on the west coast of Cape Breton. The building was originally St. Mary’s Hospital, spearheaded in 1920 by Stella Maris priests Rev. Alexander L. MacDonald and Rev. John B. Kyte. The hospital opened May 24, 1925, after the Sisters of St. Martha in Antigonish sent a contingent of nursing nuns, affectionately known as the Inverness Brigade. Nearly a century later, St. Mary’s holds a food bank and nine affordable apartments.

Although great progress had been made in Phases I – III, some work scheduled for spring has been delayed due to COVID-19. They are working to be open for site visits at the end of June, and start major parts of the work in July and August 2020, providing the government moves forward with its plans to alleviate restrictions.
