about stbonifaceonline.com

Our original site started in 1998 was hosted by Liturgical Publications (now Pastoral Solutions).

stbonifaceonline.com was created in June 2005 as a means of getting the word out on the Oral History project, which was created as a gift to the people of St. Boniface to share with their families and friends. It is continued today as a resource for family, friends and the world at large, to share the story of this historic faith community.
