Our Lady of Victory Church

Church in Inuvik

The town landmark is the wooden Our Lady of Victory Church, also called the Igloo Church, designed to reflect the local Inuvialuit culture. It has a resplendent gleaming dome and its appealing interior is decorated with scenes from the Rapture, painted by Inuvialuit artist Mona Thresher.

At Christmas, carols are sung in Gwich'in and Inuvialuktun.
