Christ the King Church

Christ the King Church was still decorated
for the recent Thanksgiving holiday when
I visited there about ten days ago.  In only
a week the church would celebrate the
twentieth anniversary of the new church
building as well as the one hundredth
anniversary of the parish in Shaunavon,
Saskatchewan.

The stained glass windows from the old
church were saved and installed adding a
welcome touch of the past to these
modern surroundings.  The walls of the
nave are also adorned by methodically
placed hand carved Stations of the Cross. 
Outside, the bell from the original church
hangs below the large metal cross
mounted on top of the church. 

The interior of the new church was
unexpectedly alluring in addition to being
a most comfortable space.   

A special "Thank you" to Father John for
being a gracious host and providing
information about other churches in
the area.
