The faithful of Holy Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Orthodox Church gathered on August 28th to celebrate 120 years of services at the rural parish, north east of Yorkton. The rain held off and a beautiful liturgy was held with his Eminence, Archbishop Irenee. After the liturgy and grave blessing the faithful gathered for the traditional sumptuous potluck. The few elderly remaining parishioners pray that they may continue the tradition of services at this little country parish.

A quick look at the worksite next to St Herman's Orthodox Church in Langley will reveal that we are finally starting to make progress after many months of delay!  Our progress is all the more impressive given that the building project coincided with the confusion and extra labour occasioned by the Covid pandemic.
