Orthodoxy in the Heart of our Nation’s Capital
Welcome to the Annunciation Orthodox Cathedral in Ottawa, Ontario. This community is the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Canada of the Orthodox Church in America and is currently administered by His Eminence Irénée, Archbishop of Ottawa.
On the surface Orthodoxy can sometimes appear mysterious and foreign but in fact, it is the universal Christian faith, which has been well established in North America since the 18th century. North America even has saints of its own, and the icons of St. Herman of Alaska, St. Tikhon of Moscow, St. Innocent of Alaska, St. Raphael and St. Alexis Toth, can be found in our Cathedral.
Our services are mostly in English, but usually include some French and Slavonic.
We would be happy to have you join us!
