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.

Falling Asleep in the Lord of Lula Corovinis Christos
The entire Saint Nicholas family would like to express their heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the Family of Lula Corovinis Christos who Fell Asleep in the Lord February 18, 2018.
O God of spirits, and of all flesh, who has trampled down death, crushed the power of the devil, and granted life to your world, do thou yourself, O Lord, give rest to the soul of your servant Lula Corovinis Christos who has fallen asleep, in a place of light, a place of green pasture, a place of repose, where there is no grief, sorrow or mourning. Forgive every sin which she has committed in word or deed or thought, for Thou art a good God who loves mankind. For there is no one who lives and does not sin; only Thou art without sin; Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness and Thy word is truth.
She passed away in Wichita, Kansas, at the age of 90. She was born in Victoria, Texas on March 5, 1927. She and her husband, Andrew Christos, moved to Victoria in 1958 so they were active at St. Nicholas.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Zoe Corovinis, her brother, John Corovinis and her husband, Andrew Christos. Surviving is her daughter, Mary Ann Christos Vining (husband Mark), two grandsons, Brad (Kim) & Drew (Allie)Vining and three great grandchildren.
May Her Memory be Eternal!
