Historic Sites of Manitoba: Belgian Sacred Heart Cemetery (501 Plinguet Street, Winnipeg)

This cemetery, which once contained the Grotto of St. Boniface, an exact replicate of the one at Lourdes (France), was formerly associated with a Belgian church. Inside the cemetery is a monument installed by the Belgian Veterans Association (Local 107) to commemorate Belgians who were killed during military service in the First World War, Second World War, and Korean War.

The Grotto of St. Boniface, an exact replica of the one at Lourdes, France, once stood in the cemetery
