Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. John’s Ruthenian Presbyterian Church / Garland United Church (Garland, Municipality of Ethelbert)

In the early 1900s, the Presbyterian Church of Canada undertook to convert Ukrainian pioneers, and built several churches, staffed with Ukrainian adherents of the Presbyterian faith. This church, originally called St. John’s Ruthenian Presbyterian Church, was built in 1916 at Garland in the Municipality of Ethelbert. In 1925 the church joined the new United Church of Canada. The church, a municipally-designated historic site (1999), appears not to be in active use.
