Saint Nicholas Shrine in New York City

Dear Friends and Supporters of Saint Nicholas Shrine:
Please see the two current news stories below which describe exciting developments in Liberty Park, the green space adjacent to Saint Nicholas National Shrine.  The trees that are being planted are truly symbolic, even as the Prophet Isaiah says:

Holy Communion and Confession

Each time the Divine Liturgy is celebrated the opportunity is ours to receive Holy Communion for the forgiveness of our sins and for eternal life. No Christmas observance is complete without receiving the newly born Christ from the Altar. Fasting is a necessary preparation for Communion. Father Kosmas will be available for Confession. Please contact the Church Office at 410-573-2072 or officeschannapolis@gmail.com.

Orthodox Traditions & Church Etiquette

In the Orthodox Church, there are many customs and traditions, which are an important part of our worship.  Some are cultural and some are pious customs. Some are essential and some are not.

Spiritual Guidance in the Orthodox Church

The Church of Christ is a Community. The Church is a body with many parts of members. The Church is a body, which was established by God, and is maintained by God, for the purpose of the Salvation of Souls.
