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.

Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!

We continue to celebrate the Paschal season, greeting one another with the greeting, "Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!" The season of Pascha (Easter) continues for 40 days, ending on the feast of the Ascension, which is followed 10 days later by Pentecost. 

Here we bless the grave of Lou Busada, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother of several of our members. This was on "Joy Day", the day on which grave blessings are traditionally done during the Paschal season. We pray the memorial prayers, and proclaim the joyful message of the Resurrection of Christ in the midst of the cemetery, with hopeful anticipation of our reunion with our departed loved ones in the Kingdom of Heaven.

"Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!"
