Historic Sites of Manitoba: Notre Dame Roman Catholic Church and Cemetery (Toutes Aides, RM of Lakeshore)

This Roman Catholic church, a municipally-designated historic building, was constructed in Toutes Aides in what is now the Rural Municipality of Lakeshore in 1934, by carpenters under the supervision of the Dutch Jesuit Gerolfus De Bodt. It replaced an earlier church building. The cemetery beside the church dates to 1907, and a monument erected in 1984 commemorates the Bretecher pioneers.
