Inscription.  

L'église des Trois-Pistoles, ce temple, ce monument. Elle est, sous plus d'un chapitre, l'histoire même du milieu, nous rappelant le grand déplacement de la communauté « d'en-bas vers en-haut » et l'avènement d'une période marquante du développement local, de l'urbanisation du milieu et de rayonnement régional. D'une richesse extérieure et intérieure exceptionnelle, l'église actuelle des Trois-Pistoles, dont la construction a été terminée en 1888, est la cinquième à avoir été érigée dans la communauté. Son décor intérieur a été parachevé entre 1901 et 1904. Avec le presbytère, le couvent Jésus-Marie et l'ancien collège, l'église des Trois-Pistoles forme l'un des plus beaux ensembles institutionnels qu'on puisse retrouver au Québec.

Ces bâtiments offrent d'ailleurs des caractéristiques communes d'architecture. Dans le cas de l'église et du presbytère, c'est un même professionnel, l'architecte David Ouellet, qui en a livré les plans: ceux de l'église en 1882 et ceux du presbytère en 1888. Les autres bâtiments se situent dans le continuité du style de l'église et du presbytère. La construction de ces bâtiments imposants

fait référence à une phase importante du développement des Trois-Pistoles, indicatif indéniable du rayonnement des Trois-Pistoles dans la communauté régionale.

D'autres bâtiments se greffent à cet ensemble institutionnel, témoignant d'une deuxième phase de développement effectuée aprês la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Il s'agit de l'Edifice Notre-Dame (ex-école Notre-Dame-des-Neiges) et de l'ancien centre paroissial. La signature architecturale differe du premier ensemble mais demeure de grand valeur.

[English translation]

The Trois-Pistoles church, this temple, this monument. It is, in more than one chapter, the very history of the area, reminding us of the great displacement of the community "from below to above" and the advent of a remarkable period of local development, of urbanization, of the environment and regional influence. With an exceptionally rich exterior and interior, the current Trois-Pistoles church, whose construction was completed in 1888, is the fifth to have been erected in the community.

3. Église Trois-Pistoles Church
Its interior decor was completed between 1901 and 1904. With the rectory, the Jesus-Marie convent, and the old college, the Trois-Pistoles church forms one of the most beautiful institutional sets that can be found in Quebec.

These buildings also offer common architectural features. In the case of the church and the rectory, it is the same professional, the architect David Ouellet, who delivered the plans: those of the church in 1882 and those of the rectory in 1888. The other buildings are located in the continuity of the style of the church and the rectory. The construction of these imposing buildings refers to an important phase in the development of the Trois-Pistoles, undeniably indicative of the influence of the Trois-Pistoles in the regional community.

Other buildings were added to this institutional set, reflecting a second phase of development after the Second World War. These are the Notre Dame Building (formerly Notre-Dame-des-Neiges School) and the former parish center. The architectural signature differs from the first set but remains of great value.
