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.

Elevation of the Cross

A Challenge: Choose at least one of the resources below and open your heart to see what God has for you during this Feast!

On one of our greatest Feasts, we celebrate two historical occasions important to our faith. Read about the Feast at Orthodoxwiki and see if you can answer which two!

If you would like to share the Exultation of the Cross with your children, click here for the story of St. Helen finding the cross and an icon coloring page.

Don't have time to read or color but will be in the car driving to and from school over the next few days? Kh Gigi Shadid has a wonderful children's song structured as a sing-along that does a great job telling the story of St. Helen finding the cross! Buy the song for your phone here.

Read the beautiful poetry in the hymns for the Feast.

Our archdiocesen website offers a helpful background for the Feast.
