Dauphin, Ukrainian Church, Manitoba, Canada 25

Dauphin, Ukrainian Church, Manitoba, Canada 25

Description : Nestled in the heart of the Parkland region, the breathtaking Riding Mountain escarpment protects Dauphin to the south and the handsome Duck Mountains loom in the northwest.
The Ukrainian Catholics of Dauphin organized their first parish in 1916. They held their first service in an old Anglican church that they had purchased and moved into town. By 1936 it could not meet the needs of a growing parish. This church was built between 1936 and 1939 by volunteers from the parish. It was designed by the Very Reverend Philip Ruh, O.M.I. (1883-1962), whose architectural talents assisted many Ukrainian Catholic parishes throughout Western Canada.
