Cathedral of the Transfiguration Canada, Markham

Cathedral of the Transfiguration

The Cathedral of the Transfiguration was a Byzantine Revival cathedral of the Slovak Catholic Eparchy of Saints Cyril and Methodius of Toronto. It was originally built in the rural Victoria Square area in Markham, Ontario, north of the city of Toronto. Upon urbanization and development, the former cathedral is now unofficially designated as part of Cathedraltown and serves as the landmark of the Cathedraltown community.

It was built to serve Slovak Catholics throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The structure closed as a place of Catholic worship in 2006. However, Jesus the King Greek Melkite Catholic Church started to use the cathedral as a place of worship in late November 2016. After completion of mosaic work, the cathedral will fully reopen in early 2017.
