PARISH PHOTO ALBUM - 125 ANNIVERSARY OF HOLY GHOST PARISH
Next year our parish will be celebrating its 125th
anniversary! On that occasion we are planning to produce a
PARISH PHOTO ALBUM as it was done in previous years. We
do need to have at least 400 families to sign up for the photo
album. Hence we ask those who are interested in participating to
either call (204.582.4157) or email (email@example.com) our
parish office. This is just a preliminary count of interested
families. The appointments for the pictures will be set up in the
fall. On the other hand, we will also need a good number of volunteers to help
facilitate this project. During our Pentecost celebration in the parish hall we will
have a volunteer’s sign-up table – if you are interested in helping out please
Welcome to our new site that is still currently under development. We hope to have it completed in a few weeks. Please send us feedback and suggestions you may have. Thnak you.
Our Catholic parish in Manitoba was founded at 341 Selkirk Avenue, by Archbishop Adelard Langevin in 1898 to serve Poles, Ukrainians, Germans, and Slovaks residing in Winnipeg’s North End. The parish was established when two Polish priests, Fathers John and Albert Kulawy of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate religious order, arrived in Winnipeg. A wood frame Gothic Revival church was built on this site during 1899-1900. It was veneered in brick in 1901 and doubled in size with the addition of transepts, a sanctuary, and a sacristy in 1905-06. The parish became the focal point of Polish culture in Manitoba following the construction of the first Polish school in Canada in 1902 and a rectory in 1903. It served as the base for Oblate missionary activity in Polish communities across Western Canada.
