Various Ukrainian Churches around Calmar, Alberta

Alberta has a sizable Ukrainian population and like most ethnic groups they made their mark on the province. I find their churches quite interesting. There was a time when churches looked like churches. I wandered around taking photos on February 22, 2015. 


  1. Very nice. We have some Serbian Orthodox churches in our area that are nice. The cyrillic inscriptions on the gravestones are interesting.

  2. Nice! Notice all the tall windows are the same shape?

    1. These are all smaller churches in rural areas. The people obviously took pride in wanting to build the best church that they could and paid attention to details. Buildings like these were important. All of them had graveyards right beside the church. Things are not the same these days.
