They’re within a few blocks of each other in Hillcrest Village. The Russian Orthodox Church of the Holy Resurrection is an elegant little structure on a hillock, just off St. Clair Avenue West at Winona Drive.
St. Clare’s Catholic Church, a City of Toronto Heritage Property, is an architectural gem at 1118 St. Clair Avenue West. Designed by Arthur W. Holmes in the Romanesque style, with an abundance of stained glass windows, St. Clare’s is painted in gold and vibrant colours. Above the altar – a commissioned painting of the Crucifixion.
