The exhibit Basilian Fathers and Their People gives a historical account of the Basilian Fathers' mission in East Central Alberta. It takes visitors back to the 10th century, when Ukraine adopted Christianity. It also touches on the history of the Basilian order, which takes its name from St. Basil—the 4th century bishop who established the first monastic rules in what is now Turkey.

The exhibit tells the story of the Basilians' journey to Canada and the establishment of their first mission at Beaver Lake, near present-day Mundare. Stories and photographs document the Basilian Fathers' work in Alberta, where they continue to serve dozens of parishes and thousands of faithful. The domes and arches of traditional Ukrainian churches inspired the layout and structure of the exhibit, which illustrates a wealth of church customs and religious traditions.
(Opened in 1993.)
