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 In Our Midst: Sunday Sermons

Sunday, December 7, 2014

As we continue to go through the Advent season - the season of the Lord’s coming - we are continually reminded of the meaning of our Savior’s birth. One way to speak of it would be to say that He came into the world as a child, for children - that is, for His children. He came to claim us as His children, to teach us to walk as children of the light, to teach us to be child-like, to be children of the Kingdom. He came to give us the “right to become children of God,” as St. John’s Gospel says.

Sunday, November 30, 2014 - Feast of St. Andrew

We all know what it’s like to wait. When we were kids we waited for the end of the school year and the beginning of summer. As summer wore on and it got hotter, we couldn’t wait for the cooler weather to come. We’ve waited for teeth to fall out, for someone to notice us, for someone to call us. Some of us have waited to meet someone to marry; or we’ve been engaged and couldn’t wait for the big day to arrive. And of course, we all remember what it was like when, as kids, we waited - and couldn’t wait! - for Christmas.

The Entrance of the Theotokos - 11/21/14

“The sacred treasury of God’s holy glory, the greatly precious bridal chamber and Virgin, the Savior’s most pure temple free of stain and undefiled, into the House of the Lord on this day is brought forward and bringeth with herself the grace of the Most Divine Spirit; her do God’s Angels hymn with songs of praise, for she is truly the heavenly tabernacle.”
