Trembowla Cross of Freedom

    This tranquil National and Provincial Heritage Site lies just 20 minutes north of Dauphin, but it will take you back over a century in time. The site and museum honours the first Ukrainian Catholic Liturgy held in Canada in 1897 and is home to St. Michael’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, the oldest preserved Ukrainian Catholic church in Canada. 

    A granite cross marks the first Cross of Freedom in Canada, while a monument honouring the first Ukrainian Catholic Bishop Nykyta Budka, a grotto, pioneer home, Trembowla school and other historic buildings and plaques are on site. An annual Moleben service dedicated to pioneers is held each August on the Sunday of Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival.

    Trembowla is located 27 km northwest of Dauphin on PR 362 and PR 491 Trembowla Road.
