CATHOLICA 200 - Upcoming Events

Make Your History Come Alive!
Fundraising Luncheon – Tuesday, May 15, 2018

To mark the Centre du patrimoine’s 20th anniversary, the Société historique de Saint-Boniface invites you to a fundraising luncheon to be held from 12 noon to 1:30 PM. on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, at the Norwood Hotel (doors open at 11:30 AM.). The Centre du patrimoine will inaugurate the exhibition Étienne Gaboury’s Saint-Boniface Cathedral: Building Tomorrow’s Heritage organized on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Father Norbert Provencher’s arrival in the Red River Colony with two companions.

Tickets available at the Centre du patrimoine’s Boutique (http://shsb.mb.ca/en/boutique) and reception: ($75 with a $40 donation receipt): 204-233‑4888 or shsb@shsb.mb.ca

Proceeds from the luncheon will be used to buy and install mobile shelving to replace stationary shelving in the second-floor vault of the Centre du patrimoine, in order to significantly increase its storage capacity for archives collections. If the amount raised is greater than that required for the shelving, the surplus will be invested in the Centre du patrimoine Endowment Fund held by Francofonds.
