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.

Remembrance Day Services

November 11th

2020's Virtual Service

With the safety of participants, volunteers and attendees in mind, our services will be held virtually this year.

Please join us to honour those who sacrificed their very lives for our peace and freedom. Beginning approximately 10:45 AM (CST), our virtual service will cover all the aspects that our in-person, outdoor service did, without COVID-19 or the weather being a factor. However, 2020 will see us forego our reception lunch at the Eagles Club on Pembina Hwy.

You will be able to watch the service right here, no matter where in the world you are.

This video will premiere approximately 10:45 AM on November 11th, 2020

Should you still want to visit the cenotaph yourselves, please know that we will have the wreaths in place, plus, you will still be able to pin your poppy onto the bands around the cenotaph. Remember to be physically distant if others are in the vicinity.
