Some time ago, Beth Schafer conceived the idea that she would like to see a permanent memorial in the Roseville cemetery to honour the many veterans laid to rest there. (Beth grew up in the area and attended Roseville church as a child. It is in this cemetery that Beth’s husband and many relatives have been laid to rest.) 

Beth discussed her idea with her family, brother-in-law George Roberts and Gordon Allen and plans were made. George and friend Wes Turner built a steel six foot cross and Beth had a suitable plaque engraved on black granite. In October 2021 a willing crew gathered at the cemetery and the cross was erected, just in time for Remembrance Day.

St. Paul’s, Dauphin celebrated the Conversion of St. Paul (transferred from January 25 to Sunday, January 30), and marked the 133rd anniversary of the congregation. We rejoiced and remembered the parishioners who came before us stretching back to 1889; our present members; and those who are to come. Our present building, the third church, is 108 years old. Thanks be to God!
