Historic Sites of Manitoba: Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church (Municipality of Gilbert Plains)

This former Ukrainian Catholic church building in the Municipality of Gilbert Plains, north of Ashville, was constructed in 1906 on two acres of land donated by Oleksa Yakymyshyn. It was served by priests from Sifton and Dauphin until 1960 when it was transferred to the Gilbert Plains pastoral district. It is believed to have closed in the late 1980s. It was destroyed by fire in 2018.
