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:

On Holy Pascha Sunday, April 24, 2022, we celebrated the Paschal Vigil starting at 8am … we had over 60 people in attendance for the Vigil with half remaining for the agape meal after the service ended at 10:45am … At 12 noon we celebrated Paschal Vespers … it was a full and joyous day indeed. 

Christ is Risen!, Indeed He is Risen...

Today we celebrate Palm Sunday.  This photo was taken to show how beautiful the center of our church looks.  That's because of the hard work by our parishioners who volunteered their time yesterday.  Thank you very much!!!.  We look forward to a week of services in preparation for Pascha which is Sunday, April 24th.  Please join us.

Today, January 2nd, St. Nicholas was lucky to have as a "substitute priest", His Eminence Archishop Michael in our church.  His Eminence served Saturday evening Vespers and the Sunday Divine Liturgy and also preached a wonderful sermon on the Sunday before Theophany.
