Our Lady of the Assumption Co-Cathedral
Gravelbourg is well-known in the region for its Ecclesiastical Buildings National Historic Site which includes Our Lady of the Assumption Co-Cathedral Notre Dame l’Assomption, the Bishop’s Residence, and the former Couvent Jesus-Marie Convent. Constructed in 1919, the Cathedral is renowned for its striking Claybank brick exterior, Tyndal stone, beautiful murals, and stained glass windows. The murals depict the stations of the cross, the sins of the world, and the life and death of the Cathedral’s original patron Saint, Philomena. And who was the artist? None other than Monsignor Charles Maillard, the resident priest. Between 1921 and 1931, Msgr. Maillard transformed the interior of the Cathedral into a work of art that is truly exceptional and unexpected in southwest Saskatchewan.
