Ministries

Clergy
On 2 December 2008, the Saint Nicholas community was blessed with the news from His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios that the Rev. Father Demetrios T. Costarakis was to be named as our permanent Priest.

Parish Council
Parish Council members represent their parish and the Orthodox Christian faith. As leaders of the community, Parish Council members are on the front line and have a long-term effect on our parish. Serving on the Parish Council ministry is also a calling to represent Christ to all whom they meet in all aspects of life.

Family Night
Family Night allows all of our faithful to gather once a month as a family to enjoy fellowship, group activities and breakout sessions.

Church School
The purpose of this parish ministry is to allow the children and youth of our community to grow on the very foundation of our Orthodox faith. This program is a solid foundation that provides exemplary lessons in the teaching and worship practices of the Greek Orthodox Christian faith.

Altar Boys
It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve our Lord in the Holy Sanctuary. All boys entering the 4th grade are encouraged to serve our Lord as altar boys.

Greek School
The philosophy of the St. Nicholas Greek School is to offer a program to students from Pre-K to Level 7 that includes the teaching of the Greek language, Hellenic culture, history, and our Greek Orthodox faith by providing a learning environment that is supportive and structured to provide the best opportunities for each student to develop his/hers individual potential to the fullest.

Dance Group
As part of the enrichment curriculum for the St. Nicholas Greek School, the children also participate in instruction of Greek folk dancing.

40 - 4
40 to 4 is a playgroup for children to develop social, creative and spiritual character from infancy (40 days) to toddler (four years). The gatherings of this group provide fellowship for both the children, as well as the parents.

GOYA
The Greek Orthodox Youth of America, or GOYA, is the ministry for teenagers (grades seven through twelve) of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.

Stewardship
This ministry involves the complete participation of each household that makes up our parish family. All are called to give their time, talent and treasures to our Lord and to His church.

Teen/Adult Choir
Going on its third year, our parish began a new ministry -- a ministry which involves love, service and chanting a joyful hymn to the Lord.

Health and Wellness
This ministry is dedicated and is focused on the physical, mental and spiritual health of our parish family members and friends.

Agape
This ministry group provides the opportunity for senior parishioners to get together with friends, meet new people, enjoy pleasant fellowships over coffee and pastry, as well as plan enjoyable events. These activities are meant to provide fellowship as well as be informative, interesting and fun.

Philoptochos
Philoptochos is a national Greek Orthodox women’s organization established 80 years ago to work through the parishes of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese to assist those in need.

Orthodox Life Series
This series will be four to five sessions/themes each consisting of four to five weeks.

Bible Study
The Bible is the book of the Church, and so our decisive criterion when seeking to understand Scripture is always the mind of the Church.

OCF
In the greater-Boston area, our Metropolis supports an active campus ministry program at six area universities: Boston College, Boston University, Harvard University, MIT, Northeastern University, and Tufts University.

Chanters/Readers
Chanting the services of the Church, reading the Scriptures and prayers within the Church, is a great blessing and responsibility.

Food Pantry
Non-perishable food items are collected on an ongoing basis. Throughout the year, the food items are brought to the Lexington Pantry, Project Bread, and other local charities.

Website Development
The St. Nicholas website ministry is responsible for updating and maintaining the church website.

Hospital Visitations
Due to privacy laws, hospitals do not divulge information lists for Pastoral visitations as has been done in the past. Because we strongly believe in the importance of Pastoral visitations in hospitals, we need your help.

Metropolis Ministries
The Metropolis of Boston offers a variety of ministries for the Orthodox faithful. We are blessed to be guided by our special Father, His Eminence Metropolis Methodios.
