Brinsley Holy Ghost Ukrainian Orthodox Church was built in 1924. The shiny brass-coloured cupolas are brilliant against the winter sky.
The cemetery has been in use since the 1910's and is large with mature trees scattered throughout.
Black, white, pink, gray and brown crosses stand on a snow covered slope on the outer edge of the graveyard.
A bell tower is tucked in around the side of the church.
Little church in the open prairie.

Saint Anthony's Cemetary is near Mendham, Saskatchewan.
So many unknown and forgotten graves.
On previous visits to Saint Anthony's I had noticed that the free standing cemetary crucifix was leaning and in disrepair, but...this past summer I saw that it had been replaced by one that was upright, fresh and new. Thank you kind soul for caring.
Saint Anthony is known as a great teacher as well as the patron saint of lost things, causes and souls.

Ukrainian settlers arrived predominantly from the Borshchiv district to the Glentworth, Saskatchewan area in 1908.
In 1926 they built this little country church and dedicated it as Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church.
There is also a small cemetery...
...with an expansive view.
Don't forget to ring the bell!

A gaggle of snow geese in a field with some black angus cattle near Birmingham, Saskatchewan.
This group includes members of both the white-morph and blue-morph colour variations of snow geese.
And there they go!
