Located on the corner of Patrice Road and Route 340. The church is designated a "Provincial Heritage Property" for Nova Scotia (17 June 1991). As of 2007, the church is no longer used for services and no new lots are being sold (only burials with existing lots). Over 218 known burials in cemetery with at least 3 headstone being unreadable and at least 18 being unmarked.

This delightful old-style church at Corberrie is a Mission of the church of Concessions. Beside the church may be seen the grave of Frederick Armand Robichaud, one of the founders of Corberrie, and in 1836, one of the first Acadians elected to the Provincial Legislature, an honor shared with Simon d'Entremont of East Pubnico.

Father Jean-Mandé Sigogne consecrated the church in 1837.
