St. Boniface Cathedral in Winnipeg
St. Boniface Cathedral is a significant architectural landmark of Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was constructed in 1818 on order of a priest who became a bishop later, Norbert Provencher.
Formed as a small log chapel, this historic building was designed in 1972 by Denis Lussier and Etienne Gaboury post a raging fire in 1968. This new church was built behind the 1906 façade and is the principal church in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Boniface.
Set in a pleasant park setting, there is also a cemetery at the site, which is the oldest Catholic burial ground in Western Canada.
