Parish Background

St. Andrew’s Mission was established in June, 2009. It grew out of the Mission Station of All Saints of North America (established in 2004) which was served from St. Mark’s Orthodox Church, Yorkton. Initially, the Mission met in the local Anglican temple. The Mission, with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Nathanial, makes its home in the temple of Sts. Peter and Paul, a rural parish of the Romanian Episcopate of America located just on the Southern outskirts of Canora, Saskatchewan. The Mission membership is presently made up from over thirty households. Our liturgical language is English. Our vision is to reach out and bring back the many Orthodox Christians in the area who have fallen away from the church and proclaim the Gospel and witness the Orthodox Faith to those outside the Church seeking the True Life in Christ.
