Divine Liturgy at our Cemetery
Because of the Delta Variant, Sunday Divine Liturgy service will once again be held at our Cemetery grounds, located on Rt. 9 in Latham, next to Guptill's, weather permitting. 9am. Please join us.
All other services will be held inside the church. I cannot mandate wearing masks in church for vespers, etc., but I would hope that attendees will wear a mask to be extra safe for themselves and others. If the diocese or the state comes out with updated directives, we will employ those guidelines.     Fr. Terenti
Welcome to our Parish

Welcome to St Nicholas Orthodox Church!  We hope you will enjoy your visit.  We are a parish of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA), serving Christ in the Cohoes and Greater Albany Capital Region.  Our liturgical services are primarily in English with small sections in Church Slavonic, Romanian, Greek or Arabic depending on the needs of the congregation at that time.

Even though our name implies we are Russian, we are truly an international community.  Our parish consists of 60 parishioners in "good-standing" with an outreach of approximately 130 who come to our church at some point in the church year. Our church is mainly composed of second and third generation people with origins from Lemkovyna (a region now part of Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia).

Recently, our church has become the spiritual home of a smattering of immigrants from Romania, Macedonia, Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, Russia and our own community here in America. Our mission is to expand our Christian family by embracing all people who want to share a life in Christ and to be the home for people of all backgrounds.

For information regarding church matters only please call Fr. Terenti at 518-369-2430. DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER FOR FLEA MARKET QUESTIONS. For flea market inquiries please call 518-867-4102 or email us at:
