The Churches of Lamont County


Architecturally stunning and a symbol of stability in a new land, the churches of Lamont County have long been the pride of the communities.

In Lamont County, there are more churches per capita than anywhere in North America. This county has a proud legacy as the birthplace of the oldest and largest agricultural settlement of Ukrainians in Canada. As more and more newcomers from Europe made East Central Alberta their home, Lamont County experienced a remarkable church-building boom expressive of their deep Christian faith.

This rich spiritual heritage is still very much in evidence today, in the numerous churches that can be found throughout this municipality.
