An outdoor funeral service at a Ukrainian Greek Orthodox church.


Similar to other developments in Saskatchewan, religion mirrored the settlement experiences between 1870 and 1930. The homesteaders arrived from many lands and they brought their religious beliefs with them. While schools were an agent for assimilation into the mainstream culture, churches were often a way to preserve their language and culture. As the population increased, the number of religions and churches dotting the prairie landscape did so as well.
