St. Matthew Syriac Orthodox Church

كنيسة مار متى الناسك للسريان الارثوذكس في ويندسور كندا

Our Syriac Orthodox community in Windsor is growing especially during the last few years, most of the parishioners are descended from northern Iraq (the biblical Nineveh city area) they have migrated and sought refuge in Canada.

Syriac Christians fled their homeland after wide spread campaign of discrimination and oppression that they were subjected to by the Islamic State (ISIS) in the region, they were persecuted because of their Christian faith and love to Christ. In spite of the harassment and deportation they kept their Christian faith and trying to regroup and keep their ethnic and religious traditions alive.
