Welcome to St. Nicholas!

Greetings in the name of our Lord and God and Savior, Jesus Christ!

We welcome you to the website of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church. The purpose of this website is to provide an introduction to the Orthodox Church and to our parish, and to provide resources for our members.  We come from a variety of backgrounds, and always welcome visitors to our services, which are all in English.  If you are a first-time visitor or have any questions regarding the Orthodox Church or our parish, please feel free to contact our priest.  We invite you to browse this website, and to "come and see," joining us in worship of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Resources for the New Church Year

Happy New Year!

The Orthodox Church begins its year on September 1st. Here are some resources for you as we begin another year in our life in Christ:

- Find a calendar of all the Great Feast Days throughout the year, along with a few other important commemorations, here: 2016-2017 Festal Calendar

- Here's a guide to special blessings and prayers that are offered on particular occasions, which you might want to keep in mind: Guide to Special Blessings

- For the new year, consider reading through the Orthodox Study Bible, from cover to cover! You can read through the whole Bible, by commiting just a little time each day, using this helpful guide (it's in a format meant to be printed out and made into a booklet): Study Bible Guide
