St. Philip’s African Orthodox Church, founded in 1921 in a suburb of Sydney, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, preserves the heritage of West Indian Christians in Canada. The parish now includes a few white worshippers as well. Considered one of Canada’s “Historic Places,” the church was the focus of a 1998 case study by Kimberly Harding, as part of her Master’s research in sociology at Acadia University. Harding learned about the church during work with a local community health promotion organization, Act! for a Healthy Sydney.
