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.
A list of burials in this cemetery is available from the Manitoba Genealogical Society, including a searchable online database available to members at the MGS Manitoba Name Index (MANI). Some additional information is contained in the 1996 MGS publication Carved in Stone: Manitoba Cemeteries and Burial Sites, revised edition, Special Projects Publication, 106 pages.
