St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral 60 Building Project is Underway! Fri, 08 Jun 2018 10:37:11 -0400 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src=""><p>Thanks be to God, after several years of dreaming and the last 18 months of serious planning, yesterday we signed with an architectural firm and have set in motion our plans to build a small addition in the alleyway of the Cathedral. The highlight of this addition will be an elevator for our elderly and disabled and much needed church school rooms for our children. Once the architectural firm has finalized the plans and the the design is ready, we will hold a parish meeting to explain everything and, after receiving the blessing of Metropolitan JOSEPH, we will kick off our fund-raising efforts. You will hear more and more about this in the days and weeks to come and start seeing work done this summer. Thanks to all who have gotten us to this point and to the generosity of Rose Faris and her brother Edward Faris who left us with a substantial amount to help us start this project. May their memory be eternal!</p></div> St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral Summer Schedule for July and August Fri, 04 May 2018 20:28:04 -0400 <p>For the months of July and August Orthros will begin at 9:00am and Divine Liturgy at 10:00am except for Sunday, July 22 (the day of our picnic) when we will have Divine Liturgy at 9:00am (no orthros that morning).</p> St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral Life of St. Raphael Thu, 25 Jan 2018 06:11:15 -0500 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src=""><p>As we celebrate the 123rd Anniversary of our Mother Cathedral in 2018, it is important that we know our history and where we came from.
