Welcome to the web page of our parish, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church of Weirton, West Virginia, a parish of the Orthodox Church in America. We invite you to explore these pages with the hope that you will become better acquainted with us and the Orthodox Church.
We invite you to "Come and See" the Ancient Christian Faith of Christ and His disciples. Our services are in English and we welcome inquirers and seekers who are looking for the "One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church" preserved from the time of Christ. We are commited to following the Great Commision Christ gave to His disciples of spreading the Gospel of Christ and making disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit!
We hope you enjoy your visit and we look forward to meeting you!
Glory to Jesus Christ!
We have all been saddened by Covid-19 that has plagued our country and the world. This virus has changed how many things are being temporarily run and affecting even daily lives which has included our churches. Thankfully we have been blessed by our Archbishop to resume services as usual per our local officials. However, there are a few guidelines we must follow until more restrictions are lifted. Those who do not follow protocols will be asked to leave. This is not for your safety but the safety of others.
1) We must be spaced out 6 feet in the church. Families that live together may stand next to each other. We will only use every other pew as well. If we are unable to do this due to a larger attendance we may have to have a rotation of people who attend.
2) Masks must be worn from the time you walk in to the time you leave the church.
3) Fellowship Hour and all other social events are still currently on hold until more restrictions are lifted.
We continue to ask God to keep us strong and protect us from this virus and that we may continue to worship Christ in "Spirit and Truth."
Christ is Risen!
Indeed He is Risen!
