St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church

Coldstream, British Columbia Canada

Ukrainian Catholic

St. Nicholas, the oldest Ukrainian Catholic Church in British Columbia, was built in 1936 on land given by Konstantine and Anne Scherba. A small church, 14 x 36 feet, it fell into disuse after a new larger church was built in Vernon. Following the 1991 designation as a municipal heritage site, restoration work was undertaken. Completed in 1997, the church reopened and Divine Liturgy is celebrated in May to honour St Nicholas and the pioneers of the church.
