Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church (Star-Peno)

The history of this church dates to the late 1890's when a group of settlers formed the first Ukrainian Catholic Parish in Alberta in 1897. The original church was completed in 1911 but unfortunately burned down in 1922. The present church was built in 1927 and contains some of the items saved from the 1922 fire. The stone belfry was built in 1949.

  1. Thank you for posting this. I'm not at all religious, but I admire the edifices that survive! It shows the perseverance of those that built them...

  2. I love the green and white colour scheme and that impressive bell tower.
