The Lac du Bonnet and District Historical Society has undertaken a substantial new initiative for the benefit of the Community of Lac du Bonnet by securing the former St. John’s Anglican Church.
The Church is our community’s oldest, intact building. For nearly 113 years, with its spire standing tall, the St. John’s Church has stood the tests of time and has borne witness to the ever-changing culture of our community.
The Church represents the gathering place of many of our area’s First Peoples and settlers from 25 nationalities. the walls bore witness to at least 679 baptisms, 172 marriages, and 365 burials.
Sadly, deconsecration of St. John’s Anglican Church took place on December 3, 2018.
Entering a new chapter of history in the making, a newly formed Preservation Committee has been formed to preserve the structure and the integrity of the former St. John’s Anglican Church.
While the church will no longer be a place of worship, it will continue to be a gathering place for our community. Together we can preserve the integrity of the former St. John’s Anglican Church and ensure that the building and the history contained within its walls is carried forward for generations to come.
