Flea Market/Craft Fair May 11, 2024

Saturday’s May 11th flea market was a huge success.  A few thousand people passed through the rows of vendors perusing the tables and purchasing great deals.  Our ethnic and grill food sold out very quickly, as well as the bake sale.  We look forward to the September flea market.

Pascha May 5, 2024

Services during Holy Week were all well attended.   86 people attended the 8am morning Paschal vigil.  Many stayed for the Agape meal at the end to break the fast and we honored two of our  nonagenarians Alice Lyons and recently turned 90 Dorothy Bellrose.

The visit of his Eminence Archbishop Michael

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.

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.

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.

For information regarding church matters only please call Fr. Terenti at 518-369-2430. DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER FOR FLEA MARKET QUESTIONS. For flea market inquiries please call 518-867-4102 or email us at: saintnicholasfleamarket@gmail.com.
