Welcome to the website of the Romanian Orthodox Church of Edmonton, Saints Constantine and Elena!

The Romanian presence in Alberta is over 100 years old. It started with the first Romanian Pioneers who came from Boian, Bucovina, in 1898 and settled 100 km north-east of Edmonton, a place they called Boian. Just a few years after their arrival, in 1905, they consecrated their new church, Saint Mary of Boian.

Fifty years later, in 1948, their descendents established the Romanian Orthodox Church of Edmonton, Saints Constantine and Elena. The church was consecrated on May 21, 1972.

Our parish is under the omophorion of His Eminence Archbishop Nicolae of the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese in the Americas, with the headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, USA, which is in canonical communion with the Patriarchate of the Romanian Orthodox Church.

We hope that you will take the time to learn more about us by visiting our entire website.

Thank you for visiting us and do come back from time to time, as we will make continuous updates!

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

V. Rev. Fr. George Bazgan
