Parish Background

St Nicholas Church in Narol was founded in 1911 by immigrants from the Brody area in Galicia.  Like most Rusins/Western Ukrainians, these pioneers had been Greek Catholic in their homeland, which at that time belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.  Upon their arrival in Canada, the people reunited with the Orthodox Church of their forebearers, becoming a part of the Russian Orthodox Mission.  They are now an integral part of the Archdiocese of Canada and of the Orthodox Church in America.  Worship is celebrated entirely in English, and the chants and liturgical customs are those of western Ukrainian Orthodoxy.

The congregation strives to fulfill its stewardship and church growth responsibilities as a parish of the OCA.  In 1994, the parish was host for the Archdiocese of Canada’s celebration of the Bicentennial of Orthodoxy in North America.  In July 1998, the parish was the host and organizing parish for the triennial assembly of the Archdiocese of Canada, held in Winnipeg.  Although transportation is not an easy matter, the parish is attracting many visitors, and family and single converts.
