Parishioners bid farewell to beloved church

  st peters

It was an emotional day for the hundreds of parishioners who attended the last mass held at St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church at 748 Keewatin.

The church building, which stood at its Keewatin address for the last 40 years, is being decommissioned, or withdrawn from service as a church. Most Reverend Archbishop Richard Gagnon from the Archdiocese of Winnipeg was invited to preside over the decommissioning mass and rites on April 2, together with Msgr. Enrique Samson, Jr. and Fr. Honesto Durango.
