Food Festival Update!
Food Festival Update!

Hello all!

This year there will be some changes to our Slavic Food Festival. The parish will not be able to support the full menu we usually have available due to our inability to access the kitchen equipment we need. Therefore, we have decided to move forward with a bake sale!

In addition to the bake sale we will also have church tours and our book store will be open as well!

November 5th! Open 10am - 3pm.

We hope to see you there!

 

Experience Timeless Faith and Sacred Teaching

All are welcome to experience the Divine Liturgy and Divine Services! Come and see the church Christ established for all of us 2000 years ago. Orthodox Christians are the defenders of Christian biblical teaching and have unwaveringly maintained the teachings of Christ against heresies and secular trends for as long as the church has existed.

 

Orthodox Christianity has held true to the teachings of Jesus Christ, paying for the defense of the faith with the blood of Christian martyrs throughout history. Come and join us in the bold expression of the sacred and mystical teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.

St. Nicholas Orthodox Church is the oldest Orthodox church in Alabama. It was established by a community of coal workers in 1894, and has been active ever since. Father Paul Davis and his wife Matushka Brigid have served this parish for decades along with the faithful descendents of the families which established it. Father Paul has been Rector of St Nicholas since shortly after his ordination in 2013.
