Administrative history

An undated document states that in 1907, the pastor of St. Cuthbert's Church in Portage la Prairie had requested that St. Boniface send a Polish priest to them once a month. In 1913, St. Cuthbert's burned down, and the 40 Polish families petitioned St. Boniface for a Polish Church. St. Hyacinth was blessed in December 1913, but it remained without a resident priest until 1924. The earliest acramental records are dated 1913. In 1952, the first Capuchin Father arrived as parish priest. The parish now integrated English and Polish, and a Polish priest only came three times per year. Capuchins served until 1978. In 1960, the boundaries between St. Hyacinth and St. John's parishes were changed with the Archbishop canonically erecting a new parish under the title of St. Hyacinth.

Custodial history

Textual records 1913-1915 were transferred from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface circa 1915.

Scope and content

The fonds consists primarily of correspondence created or received by the Archdiocese of Winnipeg.
