Biographical history

In 1902, a log church was built and named St. John Cantius. It was discovered that the church had been built on the road allowance, so a new church was built in 1925. This church burned down in 1928, and a third church (named Our Lady of the Assumption or Assumption of Our Lady) was built in 1929. The earliest sacramental records are dated 1901. As early as 1962, the Archbishop and the local priest agreed that this church should ultimately be moved into the village of Oakburn. In 1971, the parishioners officially agreed to unite with St. Catherine's Church in Oakburn. The Assumption of Our Lady Church was canonically closed in 1998 with any property under the care of St. Joseph the Worker parish in Russell.

Custodial history

Textual records 1901-1915 were transferred from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface circa 1915.
