Born October 8, 1864 in Saint-Hilaire, Leduc is not a religious painter. Indeed, he painted landscapes, portraits and still lifes. Note also that undertakes the contract at Notre-Dame-de-la-Presentation at the respectable age of 77 years. His death occurred in June 1955, more than a year before the end of the proposed work.
Located halfway between Quebec City and Montreal, in the heart of the Mauricie, the church overlooks the St. Maurice River in Shawinigan. Built in 1924, the Notre-Dame-de-la-Présentation has enough to make her parish proud who was formerly named Almaville-en-bas.
