Historic Sites of Manitoba: Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church and Cemetery (Toutes Aides, RM of Lakeshore)

This Ukrainian Catholic church, also known as the Ruthenian Greek Catholic Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is situated south of Toutes Aides in the Rural Municipality of Lakeshore. It was built in 1937, under the direction of master carpenter Mike Sawchuk, to replace an earlier church from 1910. Jacob Maydanyk, a notable icon painter in Manitoba, created some of the icons inside the church. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
