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 for more than 50 years (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. All are welcome!

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!"
