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 in 1895. 2020 will mark both the 125th anniversary of our establishment by St. Raphael and the 100th anniversary of our State Street location. If you would like more information, feel free to contact Father Thomas Zain, the Cathedral's Dean.
Please join our fellow Orthodox Christians from Brooklyn for our annual Pan-Orthodox Brooklyn Lecture Series.
