Our church is a parish of Orthodox Church in America, which began with the Alaskan Russian Orthodox Mission of the late 18th century. It is located in Rawdon (see the map), a small village in the province of Quebec, which has long become a place of pilgrimage for the Russian Orthodox emigration of North America.

Our parish is multinational. Parishioners communicate in French, Russian, English, Romanian and Greek.
