Parish Background

For many decades, Christ the Saviour Cathedral has been serving the Russian and Eastern European communities of Toronto, providing a center of worship and a meeting place for immigrants, their families, and their descendants. Especially now we continue our missionary service to new immigrants from the former Soviet Union living in great numbers in Greater Toronto area (up to 250 thousand people).

With a large congregation, we are able to support a talented choir of parishioners which adds the beauty of their music to all services throughout the year. They also give concerts of traditional church and folk music at various times.

After Sunday liturgies we welcome all worshipers to come over to our parish refectory (trapeza) for a tasty meal, coffee and tea. This is provided by our sisterhood in cooperation with the school parental committee.

We look forward to welcoming Toronto’s residents and visitors in the future as we have in the past.
