Jaroslaw (Bruderheim) – Holy Spirit [Holy Ghost] Parish

The first church we photographed was Descent of the Holy Spirit Ukrainian Catholic Church (Jaroslaw). This church was built in the early 1950s.
We interviewed David Burzminski and his mother on September 2, 2006 in his mother’s house in Bruderheim, AB.
While we were inside the church David talked about the history of some of the church contents. These can be heard in the Virtual Tour seen below. To hear a recording click on the “speaker”, to stop it double-click on the “speaker”.

The cemetery is across the road and David told us about the families of the people buried there. An excerpt from this can be seen below:

On Saturday August 23, 2008 there was a Closing Divine Liturgy celebrated at the church. The church was full for this very beautiful and sad occasion. Some pictures from this and a short video can be seen below:
