Saint Brendan the Navigator Orthodox Church is located in the historic Alameda neighborhood, home to cannery workers and shipbuilders of yesteryear. Designed by Ebba Wicks, the “First Lady of Oregon” architecture and constructed in 1964, the roofline is reminiscent of folk-inspired Nordic churches. Located on a sloping site, the property is wooded with a view of Young’s Bay and Saddle Mountain. Deer are spotted at all times of the day, munching on blackberries, and sitting on the grass listening to Vespers and Divine Liturgy. Neighbors enjoy the walking path adjacent to the church grounds.
