Sankt Orjan Church

History[edit | edit source]

Skellefteham's church accounting district was formed on 1 January 1937 when Skellefteå City Parish (from 1961 Skellefteå Sankt Olov Parish) was divided into two districts, the other district was called Skellefteå Church Accounting District (see Skellefteå Sankt Olov's Church Archive).

The church registration district was separate from the rest of the parish in that Skellefteå county parish surrounded the district.

Skelleftehamn's church registration district was broken out of the city parish in 1961 and formed its own parish, Skellefteå Sankt Örjans parish. The new parish was part of a joint pastorate with Skellefteå Sankt Olov parish in 1961, and since 1962 constitutes its own pastorate.
