Welcome to Our Parish!

Welcome to the parish website of St.Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Montreal.  Our parish is part of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia under the Moscow Patriarchate.  We are in the Canadian Diocese under the omophorion of His Eminence Gabriel, Archbishop of Montreal and Canada,

Our parish was founded in 1927 and has been at its present location on St.Joseph boulevard West since 1964.  We celebrate vigil and Liturgy services on all Sundays, the twelve great feast days and other select feast days, and maintain a comprehensive schedule during Great Lent.  Services are scheduled according to the old-style Julian calendar.

Parishioners are comprised mainly of Russian immigrants, immigrants from other Slav countries, as well as Quebecers.  We welcome all who seek a place of worship, a place to gather together and pray, a place to rest from the daily chores of secular life.

We invite you to browse through our website to get to know more about us, about the Christian Orthodox Faith, the tradition of the Russian Orthodox Church and culture, our service schedules, as well as to view information on past events and upcoming events.  This web site still being under construction, we welcome all useful comments to help improve it.

Theology and Spirituality of Icons

Icons are one of the most distinctive features of Orthodoxy Christianity. Icons are described as a “theology in colour,”
a “window to the infinite,” an “image of the Kingdom.” From the earliest times Christians sought to complement the spoken
and written proclamation of the Gospel by means of images. For this purpose they initially adopted certain forms of Greco-Roman art, which soon evolved into a distinctive sacred art governed by its own rules, traditions and theology. Icons are an integral aspect of Orthodox personal prayer and the Orthodox liturgy.

This fall in Montreal a course will be offered as part of the Orthodox theology programme offered by the Montreal Instititute
of Orthodox Theology and the Université Laval (previously under the Université de Sherbrooke). There are no prerequisites and it is not necessary to intend to follow the entire certificate programme to take the course. The instruction will be in English.
