Administrative history

Ashville is located near the junction of highways 5 and 10 in the Dauphin area. The church dates back at least to 1916 when parishioners requested permission to erect a Way of the Cross. Sacramental records were inegrated with those of Holy Trinity church at Sifton beginning in 1915. In 1921, church trustees wrote the Archdiocese requesting a priest, saying that they had had no services for almost two years. They referred to the church as Blessed Virgin Mary, not Our Lady of the Assumption. The trustees requested help to complete the church in 1929 and 1930. They also asked for a Polish bible and catechism lessons. Also about this time, there was some conflict between those Catholics who wanted a national Polish church and others who opposed the idea. In 1974, the priest sold the bell and the organ. Parishioners feared the church would be sold; however, the Archbishop replied that the building would not be sold and could be used for funerals and perhaps on the Feast of the Assumption.The final record available indicates that Mass and celebration were held on the Feast of the Assumption in 1989.

Custodial history

Textual records 1902-1915 were transferred from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface circa 1915.
