This tiny church in the High Arctic is one of the most northerly in Canada. During the 1980s and nineties it was shepherded by Father Paul Tunu Bachman and his wife Ann Marie, a Mohawk from Kahnawake near Montreal.
Father Paul grew up in White Plains, New York and studied to be a Deacon at St John’s Episcopal Cathedral in Manhattan before becoming the parish priest at St George’s for many years.
The windows were created by Fr Paul and Ann Marie in Cambridge Bay. They would purchase materials on summer trips “south” to Edmonton, and spend the long winters in Cambridge Bay patiently creating these deeply authentic windows.
