Welcome to Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church!

Welcome to Saint Nicholas  Orthodox Church.

We are an active, welcoming community of Orthodox Christians located in the city of Monongahela, in the region of Western Pennsyvlania known as the Mon Valley, on the banks of the Monongahela River, 25 miles south of Pittsburgh.

We are a part of the Orthodox Christian Church, the original ChristianChurch, founded by Christ and His Apostles.


We are a parish of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese headquartered in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

While our roots are people from Carpatho-Russia, we are a diverse Orthodox Church with people representing all nationalities: cradle born Orthodox and converts to the Faith.

We preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through word and action:

  • through our public, liturgical worship and praise of God, especially through the celebration of the Holy Eucharist (the Divine Liturgy)
  • through Biblical teaching and preaching, especially relevant, Biblically  focused sermons, and education for children and adults
  •  through service to others within our own community and within the greater Pittsburgh area.

Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to the worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers. Learn More ...
