Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Demetrius Ukrainian Catholic Church (RM of Armstrong)

St. Demetrius Parish served as the spiritual focus of Ukrainian Catholics in the Chatfield area of the Rural Municipality of Armstrong from the late 1930s to 1983. In 2000, the sacred artifacts were removed from the original church and shared with other Ukrainian Catholic churches in the area and the St. Volodymyr Museum. A small replica of the church was unveiled in 2001 by the family of Harry and Frances Blahey in tribute to those who served and attended the church through the years.
