Richard Chartrand is the third generation of his family to be
involved in the design and execution of church furnishings. His
grandfather, Michel Chartrand, founded the firm of Librairie
Saint-Michel, Inc., in Boston in 1910. The firm grew over the
years from its beginnings specializing in French religious
books. In time, the company represented the finest European
craftsmen working in the ecclesiastical fields. In 1962, under the
direction of Michel's son, Jules, the name was changed to Saint
Michel Liturgical Arts, Inc. to more closely reflect the nature
of their business. For
over forty years, Richard has created works in marble, wood, bronze, mosaic and
stained glass for churches throughout the United States. Now, at
Chartrand Design, he
specializes in these crafts that built his
family's reputation over one-hundred years for the finest
quality for worship.
