Orthodox Church in America

St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church is a parish of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, of the Orthodox Church in America, a self-governing Orthodox Church in communion with the entirety of the Orthodox World.

We have no direct affiliation with the Patriarchate of Moscow, or the Russian Orthodox Church.

The founders of our parish were immigrants primarily from areas of the former Russian empire, and beyond. While maintaining her historic name as a tribute to her founders, St. Nicholas parish is now composed of Orthodox Christians from all over the world, including Russians, Ukrainians, Rusyns, Romanians, and more than anything, simply Americans.

All are welcome here. Please “come and see” (John 1:39)!

The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It's Orthodox, but not Jewish. It's Catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational, it's pre-denominational. It has been believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for. The Faith of the Apostles, since the day of Pentecost 2000 years ago.
