We would like to welcome you to the official website of St. Nicholas Cathedral. St. Nicholas is the mother Cathedral and seat of the Metropolitan of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. It is also the first community established by St. Raphael of Brooklyn. If you would like more information, feel free to contact Father Thomas Zain, the Cathedral's Dean.
We will have our annual church picnic on Sunday, July 22 immediately following the Divine Liturgy at Ft. Hamilton Army Base on the bluff. Everyone should bring his own food and drinks as well as chairs if you have them because there are a limited number of picnic tables. We will have a charcoal grill for everyone to cook their food. We look forward to seeing you all there and spending the afternoon together.
IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND, WE MUST HAVE THE FIRST AND LAST NAMES OF THOSE ATTENDING. PLEASE EMAIL FR. THOMAS AT STNICKCATHEDRAL2@AOL.COM WITH THIS INFORMATION NO LATER THAN JULY 1st.
PLEASE NOTE THE DIVINE LITURGY WILL BE AT 9:00AM THAT MORNING IN THE CATHEDRAL SO WE CAN HAVE AN EARLY START TO THE PICNIC.
