title Tignish: Self-Reliance and Cooperation
creator Tuck, Robert C.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Not long after passing through Elmsdale the traveller on the "Western Road" becomes aware of a distinctive landmark ahead as it emerges from the similarly shaped trees of the spruce woods and takes on an identity of its own. Dominating the flat landscape, a slender grey finger pointing heavenward yet marking the earthly village of Tignish, the steeple of the Church of St. Simon and St. Jude, like the spires of Chartres, can be seen from a great distance. It performs the dual function of guiding visitors (and mariners at sea) to Tignish, and Tignish to God.
