Houses are traditionally blessed with Holy Water each year bringing the blessings of The Waters sanctified on the Feast of Theophany, the celebration of our Lord’s baptism. The priest brings this Water into the home to personally bless each family member by renewing the awareness of God’s presence in our homes. A house can be blessed at any time, but the usual season for annual blessings is immediately following Theophany.
The house blessing should be scheduled when the entire family will be present, if at all possible. Your priest understands that this will often be in the evening hours which is not considered an inconvenience to him. For further information, please visit [House Blessings].
Every Christian feels a natural yearning of the heart towards God, a true desire to taste the sweetness of communion, of being with Him as He created us to be. This longed-for inner peace comes to us through the Mystery of Repentance, Holy Confession. Confessions are heard after Saturday Vespers or by contacting Fr. Michael for an appointment Tuesdays-Fridays. Booklets to assist you in preparing for confession are available on the Parishioners’ table or by visiting [Confession Guide].

Did you know that you can support St. Nicholas by “liking” and sharing The Cultural Center’s Facebook page? If every parishioner assisted, together we could increase the business that comes to The Cultural Center. Click here to learn how: [Cultural Center].
