St. Nicholas Orthodox Church

St Nicholas Church is beginning to hold public services again at this time, by God’s Grace, albeit in a gradual progression. At this time we have room for about 25-30 people per service. Attendants are encourage to keep 6 feet apart and to wear a mask.

We welcome visitors, even during these unusual times.

Vespers on Saturday evening is at 6pm, open to all.

If you would like to attend Divine Liturgy on Sundays at 9:30am, please call the Rectory at (724) 379-4827 or email Fr. John at so Fr. John can keep a head count. In recent weeks we have not gone over our limit, so there is room.

Our parish is a member of the Diocese of Western Pennsylvania of the Orthodox Church in America, under His Eminence Archbishop Melchisedek.  All are welcome to join us to experience the beauty of Orthodox worship, and the warmth and hospitality of the faithful of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church!

The best way to learn more about the Orthodox Faith, or to deepen one's life in the Church, is to be in the Church whenever possible. We believe what we pray, and we pray what we believe; how we worship is who we are.
