Dad had the family buggy tuned and five of us headed to Canada through New England. As an aside, we couldn't find any US cigarettes, just brands of which we had never heard before. The tobacco was lighter in color, and had a different flavor, not bad, just different. But I digress. St. Anne-de-Beaupre Basilica is where many miracles allegedly occurred. The place was adorned with wheelchairs, braces, crutches...everything but the taxidermy mounts of service animals that the disabled used. But the unusual experience pertains to the collection plate. It was divided into four sections that contained neither paper money nor envelopes, just coins. It was designed to make change. E.g., if you had a 50-cent piece but wanted to donate 15 cents, needing the rest to buy a couple of donuts for breakfast, you dropped the 50-cent piece into the appropriate section of the plate and took a quarter and two nickels in change. Not sure if this practice existed in all Catholic churches at the time or at St. Anne's today, but that's how it was in summer, 1959.
