Celebrating with Bishop Irénée

We are a community of Orthodox Christians dedicated to proclaiming and living the Orthodox faith in the East Kootenay region.

Saint Aidan’s Orthodox Church is part of the Archdiocese of Canada in the Orthodox Church in America, a jurisdiction ruled by a council of synod of bishops. We trace our spiritual roots to the Russian mission to Alaska and North America in 1794.

Like North America itself, we are a multicultural community. Some of us are Orthodox “from the cradle,” while others have converted from various backgrounds. In keeping with our common North America identity, all our services are in English.
