In a race against time to save the wall murals painted by Ozias Leduc in 1902, the restoration of the Cathedral paintings began in 2012. They are considered to be a national treasure, and have been mostly covered up since the first renovation of the Cathedral in 1937. Leduc's murals have been covered by seven layers of paint and two of plaster. Since 2012, anonymous donations have allowed us to restore seven saints in the naive, and the two angels over the sanctuary`s arches. This summer, Michelle Gallinger and her team are working on four more saints: Saint James the Lesser, Saint Simon, Saint Thaddeus, and Saint Thomas.
