    Built on January 15 by the expert hands of the parishioners of the Wallisian and Futunian community, by their nature great builders, considering their impressive religious buildings. Originally, the place was intended to be a catechism school, but was quickly transformed into a real chapel.
    The courageous parishioners, thus struggled though bingo events and fairs in order to raise funds to finance the construction of the chapel. Given the scale of the project, the City of Mont-Dore also provided funds to support this voluntary initiative on the part of the parishioners. Many generous donations were also collected, and this is how the chapel was born, in the heart of the Robinson district.

    Nowadays, masses are held there every Sunday. The masses on the 1st and 3rd Sundays are celebrated by a priest and those of the 2nd and 4th by a deacon.

    ♦ Anecdote:
    A great figure of the Catholic religion lived his first moments of priesthood in this small chapel: the vicar-general and father Rock Apikaoua, who still retains an anecdotal and sentimental memory of it to this day.
