What a great time we had getting our Flea Market/Craft Fair ready for September 16, 2023. A lot of hard work went into it but it was worth it because it was a SUCCESS. We heard great comments from our vendors about the layout, considering all the rain we had and the grounds not being easy to work with. We sure hope they were successful too and will see them back at our next date when chosen. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE... One last comment, once again our photographer did not get in any of these photos..... Won't happen again haha....
On Sunday, June 11 Archbishop Michael was here to bless us on his annual visit. We were pleased to get his blessings, his wisdom, and the opportunity to speak with him about matters in the church. Father Terenti was awarded the Palitza and Vonnie Izzo, Kathy Fomuk, and Judy Fuschino were awarded grammotas. We wish them all many happy healthy years.
Saturday, September 9th is the day we met at the concession stand to prepare for our September 16th Flea Market/Craft Fair. A lot of work, but worth it.... Hop to see you all there on the 16th....
On Sunday, September 3rd, Divine Liturgy was served with many in attendance. Following Liturgy, we all enjoyed delicious food at our Labor Day picnic.
On Saturday, August 19, 2023, Archbishop Michael came to serve the first ever Hierarchal Divine Liturgy for Plattsburgh ... 30 people attended--some from Saint Nicholas in Cohoes. There was a question and answer period with the bishop while we ate an enjoyable meal with great fellowship.
On the Feast of the Transfiguration, Sunday, August 6th, 39 parishioners gathered on the cemetery grounds to celebrate the Divine Liturgy. Following the liturgy we blessed fruit and enjoyed a picnic.
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.
Our parish has an average of 35 people for a Sunday Liturgy with an outreach of over 100 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, Moldova, Belarus, 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.
