St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church

St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church:

Charlos Cove is a fishing community, the centre of which is St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, which the families built in 1876. The families came together in the community to build the church. They used to have a church service every week, but now it is held on alternate weeks between Larry’s River and Charlos Cove.
