Welcome to Our Church!

Located at 1 Saint Nicholas Drive, Donora PA 15033


St. Nicholas Church is an energetic community of Orthodox Christians from diverse backgrounds who embrace the historic Orthodox Christian faith.  As part of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church established by our Lord Jesus Christ, we are committed to living, proclaiming, and manifesting the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a Church and in our broader community. We encourage newcomers!


Visit our other pages to discover more about our parish, our priest, and the Orthodox Christian faith!


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!


We hope to see you soon!

By God's grace, we have in many ways returned to liturgical normalcy. We have resumed our weekly coffee hour following Divine Service on Sundays; masks are encouraged but no longer required. All are welcome and there is no cap on number of attendants. (Furthermore, please respect the conscience and privacy of your brothers and sisters in Christ. No one is to be asked if he or she has or has not received a vaccination. No one is to be denied full participation in the Divine Services or parish life regardless of his or her decision. No one should be judged or criticized one way or the other.) If you have stayed away in caution this past year--now is the time to return. We're eager to see you!

The Church is open for evening prayer services Monday and Wednesday at 6pm, and Saturday evening at 6:00pm, open to all.

Our main worship service is Sunday morning at 9:30am during the summer months. 

If you have any questions please email Fr. John at 

We look forward to praying with you soon! 

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. 

Come and see!
