Historic Sites of Manitoba: Second Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church and Cemetery (Sifton, RM of Dauphin)

This Roman Catholic church in Sifton, in the Rural Municipality of Dauphin, was constructed in 1955 to replace a church destroyed by fire on 15 February 1955. It was not in use at the time of a 2017 site visit. A monument in the associated cemetery commemorates Rev. Ladislaus Joseph Kreciszewski (1897-1952) who served the congregation for 17 years.
