The current church designed by architect Bertel Liljequist was completed in 1950. The previous church was completely destroyed in the Lapland War in 1944.

The most impressive thing about the interior is the altar wall dominated by a large, 14-meter-high altar fresco “The Source of Life”, made by Professor Lennart Segerstråle.

The church is open daily during the summer and Christmas seasons.

The church is worth a visit, it is open most of the time for you to go inside and there are beautiful paintings behind the altar and on the roof.

It was not close to our hotel, but it worth to walk to see this church. I missed a ceremony as I saw people going out of the curch wearing their national costume.
The interior is much more modern than the outside.

On Christmas Eve, the Finnish have a tradition of visiting the cemetery (located behind the church) to light a candle for the deceased. Such a beautiful and peaceful experience.

A place where you can rest, reflect, pray and enjoy the beauty. This church was built in 1950. The church that was there before, was ruined 1945 in the war. We also wandered in the graveyard close to the church.It was very moving to see all the graves from the Second World War and from even older times.

This is a very dynamic church. I have been in many churches and found the mural in this church exceptional. We were explained many issues about this church and it is worth the stop.

Nice church worth visiting with a lot of history.

The church is free, but it ask for payment for a brochure.

The church has a beautiful mosaic mural and organ. Outside there is a graveyard and memorial to those lost during the war.

Worth visiting, if one have some time in Rovaniemi.

This is the main church in Rovaniemi and is a landmark. There is no charge to enter but they do charge for a brochure butI guess they have to get money somehow
