Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Eustache Roman Catholic Church, Carillon Bells, War Memorial, and Cemetery (St. Eustache, RM of Cartier)

In front of this church, built in 1903 in St. Eustache in the Rural Municipality of Cartier, is a collection of carillon bells. The bells were purchased in 1928 from the French firm of La Compagnie Paccard. Named “Jesus”, “Marie”, “Joseph” and “Therese”, the four bells ring the notes fa-sol-la and do. In 1988, these bells were removed from the deteriorated church steeple and, two years later, a bell tower was built and erected by Sperling Welding. The electrification was done by Marc Goudreau of Quebec in 1994.

On 11 November 2017, a war memorial on the grounds of the church, funded by the Manitoba Metis Federation, was dedicated. It contains the names of local residents killed during service in the First World War and Second World War.
