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!"

Uganda Update

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”
—Carl Bard


The third and final term of the Ugandan school year began on Sept. 8. As we prepare for our imminent return to Uganda, we’re also reviewing the 2nd term report cards which have just arrived by post. We have a number of students that unfailingly perform well, and this term we were pleasantly surprised by some very good reports from students that have had problems in the past, both academic and behavioral. Here are their stories:
