Very nice place to visit, a short walk from The Forks, Canadian Museum of Human Rights, Esplanade Riel bridge, in the French Quarter... well worth the visit, very nice setting and surroundings. Recommended to visit along with the St. Boniface University, just next to it

A really interesting restoration / renovation / salvage of a damaged building. The old cathedral was damaged & architects were given the job of resurrecting it. The old parts have been kept & a modern building built within for modern day use

The shell of the original church built in 1900 is beautiful. Inside the new church the stain glass reflects on the altar at sunset. It’s a short walk from the Forks over the river to theFrench area
