Welcome to the website of Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church, a parish of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA) located in Mentor, Ohio. Our church has been serving Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, and Summit Counties since 1973.
Orthodox Christianity is the original Christian Faith of the Apostles. It is the Church that composed the New Testament Scriptures, defended the Faith against all of the early heresies, and is comprised of 250,000,000 members worldwide.
Please feel free to use the menu to the left to browse through the many resources offered on the site.
Of course the best way to learn about our parish and the Orthodox Christian Faith is to experience it firsthand. So as the Apostle Phillip said to Nathaniel when he inquired about the Lord Jesus, "Come and see!"
The Second Annual Mel Tintor blood drive is Friday, Ocober 21. We currently need donors and helpers. If you want to volunteer as a helper, please use the sign-up sheet on the choir church store kiosk. To donate blood, go to redcrossblood.org • In the “Find a Drive” box, type in “StNicholas” (No quotes, no spaces!!) • Click the arrow • Our blood drive should be the only one on the list. Last year was a resounding success. I’m sure that we will have even better numbers this year! Remember, you may already have an account from last year, so you might have to do a 'forgot my password' step to continue.
