St. John the Divine Orthodox Church Doors Open Windsor

St. John the Divine Orthodox Church

In the 1900s, industries like Ford and Dominion Forge were expanding, attracting workers from central Europe. As these diverse immigrant communities developed, they built their own churches – most of them Orthodox. The first was St. John the Divine. On November 27, 1949, the cornerstone of the current building was blessed. The church is characterized by its distinctive gold, onion-shaped domes.
