Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fraserwood Farms Cemetery / Sacred Heart of Jesus Ukrainian Catholic Church and Cemetery (RM of Armstrong)

This church in the Rural Municipality of Armstrong is the second one at the site, the first dating from 1906 having been destroyed by fire in 1940. The second church was built in 1942 by Fred Skomorowsky. Next to the church stands a single-bell belfry that was imported from Switzerland when the first church was constructed. The first burial in the associated cemetery occurred in 1909.
