"General front view of the new Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church in East Kildonan, Man. – From drawing of architect Rev. Canon Philip Ruh, O.M.I." Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church was designed by Father Ruh.

The new Ukrainian Catholic Church of The Holy Eucharist at East Kildonan, A.D. 1955. Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church was designed by Father Ruh and begun in 1954. The builders deviated to a degree from Father Ruh’s recommendation by using more copper than on the domes alone, as he suggested, producing a church darker than he had preferred.

In the English translation of Father Ruh’s autobiography, this church is incorrectly identified as having been designed by Father Ruh.
The digitized material from the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg fonds consists of two items: firstly, an article written by Gloria Romaniuk, Archivist for the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg Archives, that was published in Progress Ukrainian Catholic News. The article tells the story of the stone from Lourdes, France, and how it came to be installed in the Cook’s Creek Grotto, in Manitoba. The article is illustrated by archival and recent photos, including photos of two members of St. Josaphat Council # 4138, Knights of Columbus, who were instrumental in obtaining the stone from Lourdes.
