Religious

Documenting churches throughout Saskatchewan include rural, urban, abandoned, and active buildings. Sites include churches and other religious buildings all across Saskatchewan. We cover all religious buildings including Ukrainian Catholic, Ukrainian Orthodox, Lutheran, Catholic, United, Presbyterian, Anglican, United, Orthodox, Methodist and more. We also visit synagogues, missions and Doukhobor prayer homes.

We use photography on the ground and drones to capture different aspects of these buildings. We also do video walkthroughs of churches that we are able to get access to.

We have photographed all the Ukrainian Catholic and Ukrainian Orthodox churches in Saskatchewan!
