Originally the Catholic Mission of Connor; now
Parish of Notre-Dame-Du-Rosaire;
Translation:
Church of Our Lady of the Rosary

It was in 1893 that the Catholic Mission of Connors was founded. The Abbé Israel-N. Dumont established the mission and little church and a sacristy. Connors was then served by the parish priest of Saint-François.

The registers of the parish of Saint-François mention the church of Connors for the first time, saying: "On November 13, 1899, His Magnificent Monsignor James Rogers came to visit the new Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire church in The little village of Connors, a mission served by the parish priest of Saint-Francois.

The first Whites to settle in Connors were wood traders. The pine forests on the shores of Lake Wallastookwaganis were a gold mine for these men. John Ben Glazier and Robert Connors were the most famous traders. Other names to inhabit this region were Morris, Clair, Cooper, Stripes, Coombs, Jones, McDonald and Oakes.

These white inhabitants were for the most part of Protestant religion. There were also a few Catholic and French families who lay the foundations of the Catholic religion in such a distant land.
