Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Margaret’s Roman Catholic Church and Cemetery (105 Little Britain Road, RM of St. Andrews)

The St. Margaret’s Parish in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews was established by immigrants from Germany in 1927, and land for the building of a church and cemetery was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Herman Wehrle Sr. and family. In the cemetery, a large monument and a plaque commemorate the settlers and families of the founding immigrants. Another monument on the churchyard grounds, topped with a church bell, also commemorates the founding members.
