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.

Entry of the Theotokos in the Temple
During the procession, the girls of our parish represent the Virgins that welcome the Virgin Mary into the Temple.

During the procession, the girls of our parish represent the Virgins that welcome the Virgin Mary into the Temple.
The Virgin Mary entered the temple, in order to prepare to become the temple, and now prays for us to become temples of God. So there are three temples, actually:
 
1. Jewish Temple to which Joachim and Anna brought the Virgin Mary
2. The Theotokos becomes the temple of God when Jesus enters her womb
3. Our hearts can be temples, dwelling places of God
