HOLY CROSS ~ St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church



Welcome to Holy Cross - St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. While we hope that this website provides you with information about our Parish, we sincerely pray that you will come and pay us a personal visit. We welcome all resident and non-resident Orthodox and non-Orthodox faithful to our Parish.

Holy Cross - St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church (a Parish of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Toronto, under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople) was established in 1984 to provide a local place of worship for ALL Orthodox Christians in Simcoe County. We are a community of individuals and families who share the traditions and ageless beliefs of our Holy Orthodox Christian Faith.

Our parish serves not only Greek but Ukrainian, Romanian, Serbian, Ethiopian and other Orthodox Christians and, with God’s grace, we aim to provide a loving and caring Community where all belong to Christ, through worship (doxology), sacramental life (mysteria), everyday spiritual discipline (ascesis), sanctification (theosis), education (paideia), witness (martyria), fellowship (koinonia) and service (diakonia).


“Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.”

~ Romans 15:7
