Celebrate Heritage Days at St. Augustine Mission Church

The St. Augustine Church Restoration committee, with members from Alberta Culture, Historic Sites, Infrastructure Alberta, Peace River Correctional Centre, Peace River Museum, Archives and Mackenzie Centre staff and board, MD of Peace, Sir Alexander Mackenzie Historical Society and Peace River Genealogy Society, have collaboratively been working to make the site of the St. Augustine Church available for special public events.

The work is still in progress, but the first opportunity to tour the site is coming!

Celebrate Heritage Days on August 6th with a drive along the historic Shaftesbury Trail. Stop for a tour of the St. Augustine Mission Church between 11am and 3pm. The Museum will be there to interpret the site’s history. For more information call 780-624-4261 or email
