What is the Orthodox Church?

The Orthodox Church is the original Christian Church founded by Jesus and continued by his Apostles. It is the same Church described in the Bible as the Body of Christ and the Bride of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:27; Ephesians 5:23–25). Throughout its 2000-year history Orthodox Christianity has remained faithful to the teachings and practices passed on from the Apostles and early Church Fathers (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

Come and See!

We are a community of people from various ethnic and social backgrounds sharing a common commitment to the Lord, each other, and the Apostolic Faith. We warmly welcome all families, couples, and individuals who are looking for a deeper experience of the salvation offered in Jesus Christ.

Welcome to Our Parish!

    Welcome to St Nicholas Orthodox Church!  We hope you will enjoy your visit.  We are a parish of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA), serving Christ in the Cohoes and Greater Albany Capital Region.  Our liturgical services are primarily in English with small sections in Church Slavonic, Romanian, Greek or Arabic depending on the needs of the congregation at that time.

   Even though our name implies we are Russian, we are truly an international community.  Our parish consists of 81 parishioners in "good-standing" with an outreach of approximately 130 who come to our church at some point in the church year. Our church is mainly composed of second and third generation people with origins from Lemkovyna (a region now part of Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia).

    Recently, our church has become the spiritual home of a smattering of immigrants from Romania, Macedonia, Georgia, Ukraine, Russia and our own community here in America. Our mission is to expand our Christian family by embracing all people who want to share a life in Christ and to be the home for people of all backgrounds.

    For information you may call Fr. Terenti at 518-369-2430 or email us at: stnicholascohoes@gmail.com.
