Welcome to Our Parish!

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


We welcome you to the website of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church. We are a growing community made up of members from a variety of backgrounds and drawn together by the healing and transfiguring Light of Christ, which we've found in the Orthodox Christian faith.  The purpose of this website is to provide a brief introduction to the Orthodox Church and to our parish.  We welcome visitors to our services, which are all in English.  If you are a newcomer or a visitor from another parish, please contact our pastor, Fr. Daniel, with any questions you may have.  If you are discovering Orthodox Christianity for the first time, we invite you to "come and see" as you join us in worship of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


 

Christ is Risen! Christos Anesti! Al Maseeh Qam! Christos Voskrese!

Hristos a Inviat! Cristo ha resucitado! Le Christ est Ressuscite!

Indeed He is risen!

Christ Is In Our Midst: Sunday Sermons

Sunday, April 26, 2015 - The Myrrh-bearing Women

Sometimes we think we need to get everything just right, and have it all together, before we approach God. Or we think we should only do some spiritual activity if we can do it perfectly. But while God is calling us to be perfected by His grace, He knows how imperfect we are. As we said last Sunday, we are all wounded - man is one, massive wound; and Christ comes to be wounded in order to heal our wound. God knows our wounded-ness; He doesn’t want us to try to get healed and then come to Him; He wants us to run to Him as soon as we realize we’re wounded.


Sunday, April 19, 2015 - Thomas Sunday

Today, on Thomas Sunday, we remember this event, this encounter between Christ and the Apostles, and the Apostle Thomas in particular. The Lord comes to them “on the first day of the week,” that is, on Sunday, appearing suddenly in the room with them without opening the door; the door remains closed, as it says. And they are amazed to see Him; but one of them is not there. And so we remember how Thomas doubted that the Lord really came, and says he has to see Him with his own eyes and touch the wounds with his own hands, and so on.


Meditation for Great and Holy Wednesday

In our Christian faith we talk a lot about life and death. Christ dies, so that we might live. In baptism, we die with Him, so that we might be raised with Him. He overcomes the death of sin, and ultimately, as the Resurrection and the Life, He will raise us up again after our physical death and overcome that death, too.
