Saint Petka is a Serbian Orthodox Church Parish in Lakeshore, Ontario, 15 minutes east of Windsor, Ontario.

In 2013, deep divisions that have been festering for years within the Grachanica Church congregation (between those who adhere to the Statute of the Serbian orthodox Church, Diocese of Canada, and those who do not) led the loyal parishioners and parents of "Nikola Tesla" school children to separate, with the blessing of their Bishop George (Đokić) and establish a new body under the name of St. Petka Serbian Orthodox Church Parish, currently housed in a former public school on 8.2 acres of land in Lakeshore, Ontario, purchased in April 2014.
