St. Boniface Church is a historic Roman Catholic church building in Sublimity, Oregon, United States. Built in 1889 in the Carpenter Gothic style of architecture, it is a massive six-bay wooden structure with lancet stained glass windows and a steep sloping roof. The cross-adorned steeple above its front entrance reaches to a height of 110 feet above the ground. Its historic cemetery adjoins the church building on one side.[1][2]


The first Catholics came to Sublimity in 1887 and the first priest, Fr. Peter Juvenal Stampfl, arrived in 1879. He made the first entry in St. Boniface's parish records on December 3, 1879.[3]

St. Boniface Church is still an active parish in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Portland. Fr. Paul Materu is the current pastor.[4]
