Christ is in our midst!
Our vision: St. Nicholas Church will strive to glorify God through Orthodox Christian worship, sincere love and care for one another, and service to those in need around us.
Who we are: St Nicholas Church is a vibrant community of Orthodox Christians from a diversity of backgrounds who embrace the historic, pre-denominational Orthodox Christian faith. Our parish is recognized as a center of education and evangelism in the greater Pittsburgh area. Our mission is to serve God by worshipping Him and serving others, to deepen our knowledge of Jesus Christ, to renew His Image in us, and to grow into His Likeness by the Grace of the Holy Spirit.
Join us for "Basic Orthodoxy" every other Wednesday!
Basic Orthodoxy is a high level overview focused on the history, doctrine, worship, beliefs, and traditions of the Orthodox faith. Do you have a question you want answered? Bring them! We'll spend the last portion of every session answering specific questions.
Basic Orthodoxy is held every other Wednesday for four sessions only. Everyone is welcomed, no matter your religious background! Daily Vespers at 6:30 pm. Join us! Begins October 16th!

New Icon Project a Huge Success!
Recently our parish initiated a new icon project as a part of our temple renewal in anticipation of our 100th anniversary celebration in 2014. In 15 days every icon on the iconostasis was donated - a total of $38,500 in pledges! Stay tuned for updates as the icon project, painted by iconographer Cheryl Pituch of Johnstown, PA, and church painting takes shape. We look forward to the completion in October, 2014!
