London Ontario Anglican Churches

London, Ontario is the see city of the Diocese of Huron. It became the see city when the diocese was established in 1857 and St Paul's Church became the cathedral.

London's first resident Anglican clergyman was Benjamin Cronyn who arrived in 1832 and was to become the first bishop of the Diocese of Huron. His church, St Paul's, was a frame church built in 1835 and destroyed by fire in 1844. The brick building erected to replace it was to become the cathedral.

The second Anglican Church was Christ Church built in 1863. In 1873, 2 more churches were built, Memorial Church (now Cronyn Memorial) and St James Westminster. There are now more than 20 Anglican Churches in London.

North York church reaches out to Russians

Pulpit, St Theodore, North York, Ontario St. Theodore of Canterbury in North York, Ontario is planning an unusual mission in Toronto's Russian community that includes offering simultaneous translation of its English worship service.

The church is in the middle of one of the largest Russian communities outside of Russia and hosts a Russian Orthodox congregation on Sunday afternoons. But Rev. Claire Goodrich Dyer says that many Russians who grew up disconnected from Orthodox traditions during the communist era may find the Orthodox service "very formal with not much sense of community." The language used in the service is not the language of the street, she adds. "It's rather like going into a Roman Catholic church and finding a Latin service."

She believes an Anglican service will be a less formal and appealing alternative. The mission has a three-year plan, but the church has already purchased translation equipment.
