The Cenotaph, erected in the St. Norbert Cemetery, was an over-grown, long forgotten homage to the thirteen men who fought and died in World War I and who were connected to the St. Norbert area.

In 2008, Art Bloomfield, long-time St. Norbert resident, took a closer look at the overgrown monument while walking his young grandson to preschool. Soon after, he and his family made it their personal mission to ensure that the cenotaph and those thirteen men whose names are etched in stone were forgotten no more.

Celebrate and honour these men at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month.

2023 Remembrance Day Service

Thank you to those who joined us in past years, both in person and virtually, as we honoured the fallen.

For 2023, we provided an in-person service on Saturday, November 11th at the Cenotaph in the St. Norbert Remembrance Day Cemetery, on Ave. Ste. Therese in St. Norbert, MB. We regret that we were not able to provide the livestream view of our service. We know how disappointing that was for those who live at a distance or are not able to make it in person for whatever reason. We are working to make that happen for 2024. But, we still have the prerecorded versions of the 2020 and 2021 services available to watch on our website at your convenience.

Thanks to those who step up to volunteer to help each year. If you are interested in helping out this year, just let us know.

Meanwhile, we encourage you to watch the 2021 Virtual service.
