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.
When standing at prayer in the Sanctuary of St. Nicholas, your gaze might be drawn to the right side of our iconostasis to the icon of St. Demetrios. We have an opportunity to celebrate his Feastday this month!
October 26, 2018 - 8:00 am - Divine Liturgy for St. Demetrios the Great Martyr
How could directing our hearts towards St. Demetrios benefit us?
1. He invites us to reflect on our own love for God.
2. St. Demetrios and St. Nestor show us that with God's armor, Goliaths can be defeated.
3. Our great cloud of witnesses not only stand by our side in worship but also in battle: During an attack on Constantinople, "While advancing towards the city, pagan Slavs were repeatedly turned away by the apparition of a threatening radiant youth, going around on the walls and inspiring terror in the enemy soldiers."
