449 Douglas Avenue, known as St. Anne's Catholic Church was designed by architect Victor Deneka. Over his career Deneka designed several Ukrainian Catholic churches in Manitoba and became known for his fusion of a modern architectural approach with components of traditional Ukrainian ecclesiastical aesthetics. St. Anne's Catholic Church exemplifies this synthesis. Dating to 1960 the building illustrates the embrace of such modernist details idiosyncratic roof forms and clean-lined detailing, while reimagining traditional basilican forms such a central spire. The building serves as a distinctive landmark in its River East setting.
