Prayer, Liturgy, Communion, and Community are the four cornerstones of the Church of the Presentation of our Lord. These four things are the foundation of our faith, and our very being.
The the first Greeks arrived in Victoria at the turn of the century, and founded our community. It has since blossomed into a diverse parish of mixed backgrounds, blending their collective traditions with each other in the true Byzantine style, keeping in mind that we are all first and foremost, “Orthodox.”
Our services are conducted in both Greek and English, and we welcome you to join us.

Twice a month our parish prepares and distributes around 1,500 sandwiches, and assorted snacks for the less fortunate. Thanks to donations made by community members and COBS Bread (Eagle Creek) we are able to make sure we can do our part in honouring the needy.
"Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him." - Proverbs 14:31
