About 100km east of Saskatoon is the small city of Humboldt. I spent my childhood here and those memories included a place called St. Peter’s College. Every time I walked home from our family-owned cafe, I would look down the street and with an unobstructed view, I could see the silver roof-top.
In my latter high school years, I participated in the drama group which held its’ Monday evening classes at this college. Recently, I revisited this place and found the solitude and beauty most enlightening.
A small replica birdhouse of the college stands beside the main building. The silver roof-top that I could see from my home, 10km away.
Looking down at the same birdhouse from top floor window.
The dark hallways were empty during our visit.
A large window set deep into the wall allows a nice seating spot.
The organ pipes in the Chapel
Pews surrounded by lovely stained glass windows.
Large growth of trees separates different areas of the college grounds.
The Monastery Cemetery is the final resting place for the many Priests who served at the College.
A beautiful pathway from the graveyard to the main building.
