Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Transfiguration Doors Open Thunder Bay

Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Transfiguration

Completed in 1918, this is the first Ukrainian Catholic Church established in the province of Ontario. Built in the traditional Byzantine style, the cross-shaped plan features two square towers along with a central octagonal superstructure topped with onion domes. Inside, the art of Teodor Baran – celebrated for his Byzantine church painting, ornamentation and iconography – adorns the sanctuary walls and ceilings.
