Administrative history

The first church was built under the auspices of Father Camper O.M.I. Archbishop Langevin made his first pastoral visit in 1906. A new church was blessed in 1912. That church burned in 1930 and was rebuilt. The Oblates built the Pine Creek Indian Residential School in 1897. The building was sold to the Department of Indian Affairs in 1925, but the Oblates continued to administer the school until Indian Affairs took over full control in 1969. In 199, the church became a provincially designated heritage site and it received extensive restoration or renovations in 1991-92.

Custodial history

Textual records 1898-1915 were transferred from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface circa 1917.

Scope and content

The fonds consists primarily of correspondence created or received by the Archdiocese of Winnipeg. It includes a copy of the booklet "Our Lady of Seven Sorrows Church: Cathedral of the North".
