St. Mary's Cathedral, Winnipeg

St. Mary's Cathedral, Winnipeg

St. Mary's Cathedral is one of the two Roman cathedrals located in Winnipeg, the only city in all of North America with two Roman cathedrals. St. Mary's Chapel was established in 1869, but the first stone of the church was laid in 1880, and in 1887 St. Mary’s Church was consecrated. The church was designed by C. Balston Kenway in Romanesque revival architectural style with unusual German elements, and today it is an architectural jewel in downtown Winnipeg.
