Lichtenau Church & Cairn

Lichtenau was the first church built by the Mennonites of the 1920’s immigration from Russia. It was formerly situated at Ste. Elizabeth, Manitoba.

Cairn – from the Scottish Gaelic word for a pile of stones built as a memorial, grave marker, or landmark.
This one recognizes the bravery of the Russian Mennonites who immigrated to Canada in the 1920s. Depicted are three major tools used by this group: plow, cart, and spinning wheel.
