In 1871, the Russian Orthodox Church in Turkestan was organized as a diocese with its seat in Verne (now called Almaty). Forty-five years later a separate vicariate was created for the Orthodox Church in Kazakhstan with its seat in Verne, whilst in June 1945 the Diocese of Alma-Ata (Almaty) and Kazakhstan was established. As the Soviet Union collapsed this diocese was reorganized into three dioceses and in October 2010 the Eparchy of Pavlodar was created out of the Eparchy of [[Eparchy of Astana and Almaty|Astana]].
Today==The Eparchy today includes 43 [[parish|parishes]] and 3 [[monastery|monasteries]]. Its seat is located at the [[Cathedral]] of the Annunciation in Pavlodar.
