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.

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.



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

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.
