A Quick Glance

Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church is a parish in the Diocese of the Midwest of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). It has been serving Joliet, IL since September 1907.· Over the last 100+ years, St. Nicholas has grown from a primarily immigrant parish, to one whose members are primarily Americans both cradle and convert with some Slav transplants.

At present, St. Nicholas has 50+ members with many friends of the parish in attendance. We are a growing church community worshiping God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — in the 2000+ year-old Tradition of the Apostles.·

While many aspects of Orthodox worship may seem strange and unfamiliar to you as a visitor, we trust that over time the beauty, sanctity, and reverence of the Divine Liturgy will bring you into a closer and eternal relationship with God. You will be in our prayers, and we invite you to visit our church family.
