St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church in Dana, SK

St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic church in Dana, Saskatchewan, is the second church in the parish. The first church was built in 1915, two miles west of Dana. The first church was used until 1945 at which time they built a larger church as seen today. This church was built on the original site but in 1946, due to an inaccessible road it was moved to a lot in town. The outside of the church is a simple construction with three domes. The interior had wooden pews for 85 people, electrical lighting and central gas heating. With volunteer labor and donations the church was built for $12,000.

On site, there is a wooden mission cross, a belfry and a cemetery site one mile west of the church which is used by both the Ukrainian Catholic and Roman Catholic communities. I am not sure when the church was closed but it has not been used in many years and it was sold to a private owner. Today it is fenced off and on private property.
