Image Details for Manitoba Churches

1. St. Boniface Cathedral, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In 1818 a small log chapel built by Joseph-Norbert Provencher, dedicated to St.Boniface, was the first permanent Catholic mission west of the Great Lakes. Five cathedrals have stood here since. The last, the best example of French Romanesque architecture in Manitoba, was destroyed by fire in 1968. The replacement, a smaller church, incorporates the sacristy, facade and walls of the old basilica.

2. St. Emeric Hungarian Roman Catholic Church, Langruth, Manitoba, Canada. Small church in rural Manitoba, flanked by leafless trees in the fall, built in 1937 by and for immigrants to the province.

3. Monastery of Our Lady of the Prairies, 1903-1904, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. On invitation, five Cistercian monks of the Trappist Order from the Abbey of Bellefontaine, France, founded this first monastery in western Canada in 1892, destroyed by arson in 1983.

4. Russian Greek Orthodox Church, Minitonas, Manitoba, Canada. Rich in symbolism, the Russian Orthodox Church acted as a bastion of national identity especially for the post-1917 White Russian emigrants who founded about 20 churches.

5. Griswold United Church, Manitoba, Canada. Most of the over 200 Methodist and Presbyterian churches built from 1890 to 1910 were small wood framed, but this is a stone church built in 1896 in the English tradition.

6. Frelsis Lutheran Church, Grund, Manitoba, Canada. Built in 1889, this is the oldest Icelandic church in Canada, and still in use. It stands as a monument to the faith of the Icelandic settlers who pioneered the Argyle district.

7. Church of Christ, Carman, Manitoba, Canada. This wooden building was built in 1898 as a Presbyterian church, then became St. Andrew's United, and Church of God. It has now been remodelled to serve as a tea room.

8. St. Johnís College, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada. St John's College is a small, Anglican College located on the University of Manitoba campus in Winnipeg, Canada. Officially opened by Bishop Robert Machray on November 1st 1866 but the its roots lie in the early years of the Red River Settlement.

9. St. Peterís Dynevor Church, East Selkirk, Manitoba, Canada (4). This church on the banks of the Red River was built in 1854. In the cemetery is the burial site of Chief Peguis, a Saulteaux chief, who befriended the original Selkirk Settlers and was converted to Christianity. The river usually freezes in winter.

10. St. Boniface Basilica, Winnipeg, Manitoba.. The basilica was rebuilt around the ruins after a fire in 1968. The rose window was not replaced. Early church buildings have dominated the area of old St. Boniface, which is home to the largest French community in Canada outside Quebec.

11. St. James Anglican Church, Neepawa, Manitoba, Canada. A sign outside the church warns motorists to ĎDrive carefully. You may hit an Anglican.í
