St Mary Orthodox Church began to be organized in 1906, and was permanently established in 1909. Its founders were Orthodox Christians of Slavic background. Most moved to the area with the promise of land ownership and employment in the logging industry. As their Orthodox Christian faith was essential to their lives, the building of the Church community was a natural outcome. With the gradual closing of the lumber industry, many families migrated to other parts of the region, while some families stayed in the area.
Always having been a small parish, St Mary’s nonetheless maintains a regular seasonal worship schedule, and continues to attract worshippers and tourists during the non-winter months. Set in the woods at the edge of this Lake Superior village, St Mary Church of Cornucopia provides an anchor of faith for its parishioners and a spiritual retreat for travelers.
