Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church and Cemetery (Cooks Creek, RM of Springfield)

The first mass in St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church at Cooks Creek, in the Rural Municipality of Springfield, was celebrated in 1899. The church was destroyed by fire in 1922 and the present building incorporating the original bell tower replaced it. The earliest documented burial in the associated cemetery occurred in 1910. The graves are not individually marked, the original wooden markers having deteriorated and disappeared. A stone monument lists the names of those buried here.
