Parish Background

Holy Resurrection Russian Orthodox Cathedral was established in 1794 and elevated to Cathedral status in 2001 by His Grace Bishop NIKOLAI. The Cathedral is a well known land mark in the community and today continues to be the most recognized building in Kodiak. The current church building is the fourth and was built in the 1940s after a devastating fire destroyed the previous church. Currently, the Cathedral is blessed with the holy relics of St. Herman that offer the faithful an opportunity to pray and venerate his holy reliquary along with his monastic skufia and the iron cross he secretly bore upon his chest. The beautiful lampada which burns continuously above his reliquary was a gift to the Cathedral from His Holiness Patriarch Alexis II during his visit to Kodiak in 1993. Holy oil from this lampada is used to anoint those who are sick and suffering and is distributed freely to pilgrims who come from all over the world.
