Saint Nicholas in Narol

St. Nicholas in Narol, is an Orthodox Church, part of the Archdiocese of Canada (Est. 1916) and Orthodox Church in America, whose is roots in North America date back to the established Russian Orthodox mission in Alaska in 1794, and was granted Autocephaly (self governance) in 1970.

We are located 20 minutes North of Winnipeg at 5635 Henderson Highway (Just south of Lockport) in the tiny village of Narol, and have for over a hundred years served the rural and suburban communities of Winnipeg, Selkirk, and the municipalities of East St. Paul and St. Clements.
