To all parishioners of St. Nicholas Cathedral in Montreal!

Our dear parishioners!

These days, we all strive to be as close to our church as possible. We share your feelings, but, unfortunately, we are compelled to ask all of you to refrain from such an understandable desire to be physically close to the sacred walls of our cathedral in order to cross ourselves under its dome. This may cause dissatisfaction and suspicion of those who live next to our cathedral, and we could be accused of violating the quarantine rules established by the city authorities. As a result, the police could deprive us of the right to worship in the church, even in the current setup (no more than two people).

If you have any questions for us, please call any of the clergy. None of your appeals will go unanswered.

Archpriest George Lagodich - 514-945-4369

Archpriest Valery Chemsky - 514-452-8523

Hegumen Nikolay (Perekrestov) - 514-820-4960

Archpriest Michael Metni - 514-293-9095

Authorities forbidden all gatherings!

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
In light of the present situation with the coronavirus pandemic, the local authorities have forbidden all gatherings of any sort within our cathedral!  We will be complying fully! 

Services will continue to be held but restricted to clergy only behind closed doors.  Please do not try to gain access during these times which will serve to make the best of this difficult situation.

We ask that you inform any of our parishioners that do not have access to the internet!

We are working very hard to organize good quality live broadcasts of these services. 

At this time you can follow us on Facebook at St-Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral.
