Long Description:
Both Ukrainian Churches are in North Kamloops, on the North side of the Thompson River, across from the old, original part of the city. While the Orthodox church is fairly new, having been built in 1994, this one predates it by 41 years, having been built in 1953. At least we assume that it was built in that year, as the plaque/cornerstone is in cyrillic, which we don't read.

This is a rather austere stuccoed wood frame church with only a pair of onion domes, each with an orthodox cross atop, as is the norm for Ukrainian churches, even Catholic ones. In the front yard of the church is a large wooden cross with a plaque in remembrance of the The Holy Mission, on the Jubilee year, 2000.
