Welcome to the St. Nicholas Orthodox Church Website
Welcome to Saint Nicholas Church!
We are a parish of the Orthodox Christian Faith which was established on the day of Holy Pentecost in the Year 33 AD. Our parish community is a member of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the U.S.A. whose presiding bishop is His Grace, Bishop Gregory of Nyssa. The American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese is an autonomous diocese under the spiritual protection of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople of which His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I is the Primate.
Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to the worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers. Learn more about us...
Letter from Father Ken Bachofsky
As published in the bulletin, May 31, 2021:
Dearly Beloved in the Risen Lord,
As you may be aware, Governor De Wine, as of June 2nd, will lift all mandated requirements imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic! This comes with a sigh of relief for all of us, especially after so long a period of time. In cooperation with the governor, His Eminance, Metropolitian Gregory, adds his blessing as well. The lifting of these restrictions will be effective here at St. Nicholas Church beginning now. Thanks be unto our Risen Lord, Jesus Christ, the Devine Physician of our souls and bodies. Read More
