Immediately North of the Dagmar Church is a small, ornate, Danish style garden where one can pause for some reflection.
The permanent plaques on the curving brick wall are there to honour the memory of loved ones who have passed on.
Danish-Canadian immigrants were devout Christians, strongly connected to their church. The church building functioned as both spiritual home and social centre.
The Dagmar Pioneer Church is a miniature version of a popular Danish church design. It's used for worship services and special events like weddings and baptisms. With seats for 24 people, it is an ideal venue for an intimate ceremony.
When you visit, check out the symbols in the stained glass windows, crafted by Danish-Canadian Carl-Ove Andersen. Admire the skib (model ship) hanging from the rafters. And learn why a Danish-Canadian girl receives a Dagmar cross at her baptism, confirmation, or wedding.
Linger a while in our lovely little church. Unwind, renew your spirit––or say a prayer.
