The arrival of the first Orthodox missioners in America

1411

Today, commemorating the Arrival of the first orthodox missioners in America (1794): Saints Herman, Juvenaly and others, we suggest a short pilgrimage to the Island of Orthodoxy in America.

Spruce Island near Kodiak is considered by many Orthodox Christians to be one of the holiest sites in North America.

The island was home to the hermitage of Herman of Alaska during the early 1800s.

Every year, in early August, the Orthodox Church in America celebrates the canonization of St. Herman with a Liturgy, pilgrimage, and banquet.
