A Catholic Haunting

 Saskatchewan is a province full of religion. Years ago their were many missions, convents and private catholic schools all over this province. Most of these locations were demolished but most of the churches remain at these sites. Some of the schools also remain around the province, most are re-purposed.

Why am I telling you this? Because their is a haunted religious site where only the church remains that is known to be very haunted. The locals all know about this building and each has had a different experience. The church that remains at the site was becoming run down a few years ago. The building was falling apart and the vandalism was starting inside the church.

I was told by some locals that people will feel their legs being grabbed, arms being pulled and there is a feeling of someone watching them. The church is very active and whatever remains is not friendly. It is believed that what remains is aggressive and doesn't take kindly to younger people that enter the church.

People have shared stories about a girl having her arm grabbed and there was hand print mark on her arm. Another was choked by a figure while walking down the aisle of the church. Others have heard whispers and laughing outside the building. Figures in robes have also been seen walking around the church.

I have been to this church and I have experienced what haunts it. It is not a nice place to be, even after my experience I sat outside on the steps and I could still feel its presence.

Recently the church has been cleaned and repaired. The activity seems to have simmered down a bit. Maybe whatever was watching this building was just upset at the condition of the beloved church? No one knows for sure, but there is no doubt that something is watching over it.
