Welcome to the St. Nicholas!


 Sunday Services are as follows: Matins: 10:00 AM Divine Liturgy: 10:55 AM

On behalf of the entire parish family of St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church, I would like to welcome you to our website. St. Nicholas Church has had a rich history in San Francisco since 1937 as a beacon of Orthodoxy, shining for all those who have sought and still seek a spiritual oasis in the midst of the busy life of this beautiful city and the greater Bay Area. Various organizations of the parish serve as arms of the church to provide education in the Faith, community service activities and fellowship for all. These organizations include our Christian education program, youth groups for teens and young adults, seniors group, choir and our ladies’ and men’s auxiliaries. Please do not hesitate to come and worship with us anytime. We welcome visitors of any faith to join us for our services to experience what Orthodoxy is all about.

“He saith unto them, Come and See…” John 1:39

Warmest regards and God’s blessings, Very Rev. Fr. George Baalbaki
