RED RIVER MISSION  - A STORY OF A PEOPLE AND THEIR CHURCH is a graphic novel that relates remarkable events concerning the Catholic Church in Western Canada.

This story is tightly interwoven, like a voyageur's sash, with significant events in history of Western Canada, thanks to the Church's involvement since 1818 in social, political ans cultural aspects of a nascent society.

In this book, Manitoba's history comes alive: the fur trade, the voyageurs, the bison hunt on the Prairies, the Battle of Seven Oaks, the Battle of Grand Coteau, the saga of the Metis and First Nations, and the founding of the Province of Manitoba, the story of Louis Riel.

This fascinating historical chronicle

is a related in a series of true

anecdotes, captured through the

lens of the ninth art, illustrating

the colourful history of

Western Canada during the eras 

of bishops Provencher and

Tache in the West, whose

contributions have significantly 

impacted Canada's present environment. 

You can purchase your copy for $18.00 from the parish office.
