Rural Churches near Edmonton (Page 2)
Especially Ukrainian, Greek and Russian Onion-Domed Roofs
A personal travel view
|More onion-domed rural churches near Edmonton.|
On the previous page I mention a Lamont County pamphlet which gave me the idea to go church photo exploring. There are some nice examples in Edmonton but I will leave the recording of big city churches to others. I am more interested in the secluded rural examples.
I have many more local photos at Flickr.com/CanadaGood.
Many of the examples on this page are close to the massive Upgrader Alley development north-east of Edmonton, Alberta. Most of these photos were taken in July 2008. So far the planners have done a decent job of integrating farms and nature with the industrial development; but the new development will cover many square kilometres and things will not look better.
The first two churches are within sight of each other.
St. Demetrius Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Jaroslaw Parish) 1940
The next two are close together on Range Road 200 Nth of Hwy 45. The third church is 10 km farther north on Range Road 200.
Exulatation of the Holy Cross Ukrainian Catholic Church at Skaro 1945 .
Nativity of the Mother of God Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church at Leeshore (Also known as Nativity of the Blessed Vigin Mary Church) 1918 .
Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church at Delph 1917 
Two churches and the Peno Hall at Peno, Alberta
Peno Hall and the St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Orhtodox Church 1909 
Most of these churches are well maintained. Some have very impressive names! The next two buildings were built by congregations that fought court battles over ownership.
Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church at Star-Peno 1927
