In the early 1900s, the area where Redwater stands was settled first by Ukrainian settlers.

Initially constructed in 1926, the monumental Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Church was originally named the Ukrainian Greek Orthodox Church of Canada. Although small, when it was constructed, the church was known as the “Ukrainian National Home” with a priest of Ukrainian origin. Eventually, the church became a primarily religious site for those of Ukrainian origin.

Sts. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church

The mesmerizing Sts. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church were established in 1911 by a group of pioneer settlers. These settlers were of Austrian origin and had decided to construct this church in the early 1900s to represent their heritage.

 

The external and internal architecture is worth the praise and is deeply rooted in European culture. As an example, the church’s original bell was imported by the European continent when the church was first constructed.
