Welcome to the website of Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church located in Endicott, New York, about nine miles west of Binghamton. Our parish is under the omophorion of His Eminence HILARION, Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. We trace our roots back to our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Apostles and their teachings. We are a refuge of the moral, theological, spiritual, and liturgical traditions of the Holy Orthodox Church whose unbroken Traditions date back to the day of Holy Pentecost in 33 AD. Our church is dedicated to our Father among the Saints Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra of Lycia, the Wonderworker. Our primary Patronal Feast is celebrated on May 9/22, the Feastday of the Translation of his sacred relics from Myra to Bari, Italy (in 1087), where they are venerated there, here, and elsewhere to the present day. Our secondary Patronal Feast is celebrated on December 6/19, which is the Feastday of our Father among the Saints Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra of Lycia, the Wonderworker. We invite you to come and visit Saint Nicholas and us, the Orthodox faithful at his parish in Endicott, and come into contact with the worship of early Christianity! You are always welcome to pray with us and participate in our activities and programs!
Hymn to Saint Nicholas:
For those of us who find ourselves amid misfortunes as we journey by land or sail the seas, for those of us who are nearby or far removed, thou art a great and fervent advocate, an exceeding merciful and mighty intercessor, O Holy Nicholas, sacred preacher of Christ. Wherefore, assembling we cry: Entreat the Lord that we may be delivered from every evil circumstance.
