Photos of the Consecration of The Sign of the Theotokos Orthodox Church in Montreal QC on 18 May 2009 by His Beatitude Metropolitan Jonah (Primate of the Orthodox Church in America) with Archbishop Seraphim of Ottawa and all Canada, Bishop Benjamin of San Francisco and the West and Archpriest John Tkachuck, the Rector of the parish ... along with many local and visiting clergy and faithful. The Sign of the Theotokos parish began in Sept 1978. After many years of renting facilities (including 18 years in the basement of a Roman Catholic church) we purchased our own church building in July 2000. Nine years later, we were finally able to have an iconostasis made and installed. Thus, the time had come to consecrate the church.
