Long Description:
The present church was constructed in 1915 under the direction of Father A.K. MacIntyre. Popularly known as “Father Mac,” he served the parish for nearly 60 years and was loved by all.

The original church had been on Davis Street on the west end of town, near the Miner’s Union Hall. The first Catholic priest to visit Rossland, Father Bedard, conducted the Mass in the mines. The history of the Catholic church in Rossland is marked by interesting occurrences from Father Lemay’s errand of mercy, to Father MacKinnon’s death ride on a racehorse.

This building is registered in the Rossland Heritage Register.

Photos are taken from across Butte Street, looking northwest.
