St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church is an Eastern Orthodox Parish in Corpus Christi, Texas, built in 1950. The Divine Liturgy is celebrated in English and in Greek and our parishioners are of varied ethnic backgrounds.We sincerely hope that you will come and be one of our distinguished guests; to experience the Divine Liturgy of the Eastern Orthodox faith and the Mysteries of the Church. The faith and wisdom of the Church Fathers runs deep in Orthodoxy. As we boldly proclaim "Christ is risen" at the Resurrection service on Pascha (Easter), we acknowledge that our Lord and our God is both crucified as a sacrifice of Himself for our salvation and risen from the dead, thus destroying death by death. As Orthodox believers, we see salvation not as just a one time event, but as an everyday experience through God's grace. We were saved, we are being saved, and we will be saved. The Reverend Fr. Anthony M. Coniaris states in his book, Introducing the Orthodox Church on page 41, "When we speak about God in the Orthodox Church, "the word God by itself is too vague, the Trinity amplifies and describes God more fully. To us, God means the Father, Who loves us, the Son who saves us, and the Holy Spirit who abides within us." It is with the fullness of the Trinity, that we warmly welcome all of you to our parish.

Dear Parishioners 

During the Coronavirus Crisis we have been directed to make drastic changes to the way we worship and partake in the sacraments.  We are not alone. We will survive and our worship routine will return to normal.  

During Great Lent we are called to increase our prayer life.  Let us use these special times as an opportunity to increase our prayer life.

Although Sunday Divine Liturgies have not been canceled, only the priest, the chanter and special assistants are allow to attend.  The remainder of the Faithful can participate by viewing live-streaming of the service.   We will also be live-streaming the Salutations / Akathist Services. 

His Eminence Metropolitan Isaiah has directed the priest to schedule times for the Holy Eucharist.  Beginning Sunday 3/22, here are the times during the week when you can receive the Holy Eucharist.  Contact me if you need to make special arrangements or if someone needs me to make a house visit.

Sunday afternoon – 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.

Monday morning – 7:30 to 8:30

Wednesday evening – 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.

You can view live-streaming of the service by going to the following link and clicking on the red subscribe box.

We are still working on live-streaming, so please be a patient.
