Historic Sites of Manitoba: Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church and Cemetery (Seech, Municipality of Harrison Park)

This Ukrainian Catholic church in the Municipality of Harrison Park was constructed between 1911 and 1912 on five acres of land donated by Theodore Barabash. The building was constructed by volunteers under the supervision of Wasyl Kuch, and Mark and Theodore Nowasad. The cross was built by Maxim Gerelus in 1913. The church and its associated cemetery became a municipally-designated historic site in November 1993. A rock monument beside the building, erected in 1984, lists the names of settlers in the area.
