Holy Barbara Cathedral
Canada, Edmonton

The first modest wooden chapel was consecrated in Edmonton thanks to the hard work of priest Jacob Korchinsky and his mother Varvara in 1902. A few years later, in 1908, a wooden building of a typical temple was built, which lasted half a century. In 1946, a general meeting of parishioners decided to enter the jurisdiction of the Moscow Patriarchate, which was carried out on December 18, 1955. The main shrine of the cathedral is a particle of the relics (left foot) of the Holy Great Martyr Barbara, taken out of Kiev and transferred to the cathedral by His Eminence Panteleimon.
