The Cor Jesu Oratory, also known as the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, is undergoing a makeover, and part of the building constructed in the 1860s will be used as a monastery for monks and nuns. The inside of the church is well-preserved. The town of Edson church has a new roof, but windows and flooring need to be replaced and it lacks handicap-accessible restrooms. The interior of the church remains much as it was when built, with hand-carved altars and other intricate woodwork.

BOYD - After sitting empty for more than a decade, the Cor Jesu Oratory, also known as the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, is seeing new life.
The church, at 31350 Highway MM in the town of Edson, was built in the 1860s, but activity in the building died down in the 1970s as the congregation shrunk. Continuing services there proved difficult when no priest was assigned to the church, Sister Petra Gwidt said.
[One correction: The sisters will live in the former school convent and the monks will live in the former rectory.]
