Today's photo is of the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Lethbridge, Alberta. I don't drive around the north side of Lethbridge that much so this church really stood out to me. I love the symmetry of the spires on the left and right of the building. This building was created and built by the displaced Ukrainians after World War Two. They had come to southern Alberta to work in the sugar beet fields. Their charter was established April 22, 1942. (Source: http://www.lethbridge-orthodox.org)
I don't know much about their religion but I find it fascinating that a Ukrainian church is well and strong in this community. We were trying to read the sign on the front door from across the street but couldn't. Then we realized it was in Ukrainian!
