St. Elizabeth Cemetery, Polonia

The earliest Catholic congregation in the Neepawa area was north west of town in the Mountain Road - Polonia area.
The first church in Polonia was built in 1887 with the new one being completed in 1902.
The church was named St. Elizabeth's in honor of a 13th century princess who cared for the poor, the sick and the outcast.
Until 1903, with the arrival of Father Ernest Kistorz, the parish had no resident priest
and the parishioners had to depend on intermittent visits from missionary priests.
In 1980, St. Elizabeth's again became a mission and depended on priests' rotation to have a service.
St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church is located in Polonia but over the years has served Catholics from the surrounding areas.
