Long Description:
Le Congrès eucharistique de septembre 1918, organisé par l'abbé Onil Milot, fut un des plus grands événements religieux de l'histoire de Victoriaville, attirant 40 000 personnes.

Pour cette occasion, 24 arches avaient été construites. Par la suite, certains ont associé l'épidémie de grippe espagnole (typhus) au Congrès et à ces gens qui venaient de partout.

Toutes les arches, sauf une, ont par la suite été détruites. L'arche de Ste-Victoire est la seule qui reste.
