Holy Trinity Church

Enlarge text:  smaller  |  larger

Six years before the town of Winnipeg was incorporated, the Parish of Holy Trinity held its first services in the Court House, outside the enclosure of the settlement of Fort Garry. Organized by Archdeacon John McLean in 1867, services were later held in the Red River Hall Portage and Main. The Hudson’s Bay Company loaned land to the Parish for its first church located near the corner of Portage Avenue and Garry Street in 1868.

Both the town and the congregation were experiencing tremendous growth. The Church was extended in 1870. The Parish purchased the land from HBC in 1875 and a larger church was built.
