Churches in Igloolik Parish

Igloolik - St. Matthias'
Hall Beach - St. Silas

The community of Igloolik dates from the late 1950s, with the federal government's increasing administrative interest in the Arctic. By the mid-1960s, a school, nursing station and RCMP detachment were permanently established, as well as the Anglican mission (1959) and the Igloolik Cooperative (1963). As with other settlements in the eastern Arctic, Igloolik grew rapidly as Inuit families from surrounding camps moved into the community to avail themselves of services offered by government agencies.

The first rectory in Igloolik was built in 1959 and a newer house was purchased in 1996 as a replacement. The church was built in 1962.

St. Silas Church - Hall Beach (outstation)

Hall Beach was created when a Distant Early Warning (DEW) site was built in 1957. On beaches at one end of town are many Thule winter houses. Flagstone floors, stone sleeping platforms massive bowhead whale skulls that formed doors, rafter and walls are still visible. In the 1950s and 1960s, Inuit moved from surrounding camps to work and settle around the DEW Line site. (Sanirajak, meaning "one that is along the coast" in Inuktitut, refers to the broad region around Hall Beach.) Despite changes that have occurred over the years, Hall Beach remains one of the most traditional communities in Nunavut.

An Anglican Church was built in the community in 1970/71. The community is an outstation of the parish of St. Matthias in Igloolik.

Quote of the Day
Isaiah 8:19

"When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?"
