St. Valentine

Date Founded: 1910

Status: Suppressed, 1988

County: Jasper

Notes: Prior to the establishment of St. Valentine's Church, Catholics living near The Bend attended services in Ste. Marie. In 1891, Valentine and Magdalen Kraus donated three acres and $4,000 to build a church. Although the church was finished, St. Valentine didn't officially become a parish until 1910. 

The church is no longer open for regular church services, but is maintained for occasional use.
