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.

Upcoming Feast - The Transfiguration
Get ready for the Transfiguration!

We will celebrate the Transfiguration of our Lord with both a Vigil Service (Vespers, Orthros, and sweet Artoclasia Bread) on Sunday, August 5th, at 5pm. Monday, August 6, join us before work for Divine Liturgy at 6am.

Would you like to know more about this special Feast? Here is a good summary, which also explains everything you see in the festal icon. If you would like to reflect further, Fr. Patrick Reardon delves into how each gospel account portrays the events with different emphasis.

3 Important Truths from the Transfiguration:

1. It revealed Christ as divine.

2. It let the apostles know that Our Lord Jesus Christ truly is the splendor of the Father...and that his Passion was voluntary (Mark 9:2-9).

3. Most immediate to our own lives - it gave us a sneak peak into our own destiny - should we choose - to be Transformed from what we are into the image of God.

God is even now going about TRANSFORMING US through our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord showed us the way He was paving for us by going before. May we follow with fervor!
