The presented article focuses on the copy of a manuscript book of the meeting minutes of the parish board of the parish of Sts. Peter and Paul in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. This was the first Slovak Greek Catholic parish on the Canadian soil. The article briefly narrates the history of the Slovak settlement in Lethbridge before the creation of the parish and continues with the years depicted on the pages of the book. Interesting is the fact that the Slovak immigration to Lethbridge had its origin among the Slovaks, who already settled in the USA. Using the quotations from the copy of the manuscript book we are able to trace the efforts and life of this Slovak Greek Catholic community from the very start till the outbreak of the WWII. The article continues with the history of the parish till the creation of the Slovak Eparchy in 1980, when the parish was not any longer considered to be Slovak.
