Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Lamont County, Alberta.

The photos are of Saint James Russo Greek Catholic Orthodox Church near Mundare, Alberta. A few days ago there was a young couple (Michael and Andrea) clearing the snow from one side of the church with a Bobcat for Christmas service on January 7. Michael was kind enough to let me into the church which seats about fifty people. It's a beauty! He also told me that a young priest has moved here from Ukraine and is taking the services in about ten of the country churches. That's not a story you hear every day.

  1. So pretty inside! That is nice to hear there will be services still in at least 10 of those places!!

  2. That's a big circuit for one priest.
