Xristos Anesti! Christ is Risen! 
 
Beloved Family of St Nicholas,
 
I ask your attention for an important announcement: 
 
As you may have heard, President Trump has deemed Houses of Worship as essential. While this is good news, it is important to know that the regulations of New York State and Suffolk County have NOT changed to allow more than 10 people in a church. 
The Archdiocese has also given our churches other strict directives. WE ARE NOT OPEN ...
 
Uniquely to St Nicholas, it is critical to remind our parishioners that due to the fact that construction is ongoing, there is no parking lot, sidewalk, or stairs to the church - no one is allowed to enter the premises until further notice.  We are subject to regulations through the Town of Babylon and construction site liability. 
 
No one wants to open our church more than me, however I have to ask your patience for the time being, and we will send opening instructions and guidelines to re-enter St Nicholas as soon as possible!  
 
We continue to be united as the Body of Christ through prayer and faith, and we will return to St Nicholas very soon. I thank you for your patience and support in this matter. 
 
+ Rev. Fr. Demetrios Kazakis
Proistamenos

“Prayer in church is important. The best thoughts and feelings come in church, yes, and the enemy attacks more violently in church, but with the sign of the Cross and the Jesus Prayer, you drive him away. It is good to stand in some dark corner in church and to pray to God. “Let us lift up our hearts!” the priest exclaims, but our mind often creeps along the ground, thinking about indecent things. Fight against this.”

+ St. Barsanuphius of Optina

"We knew not whether we were in heaven or on earth, for surely there is no such splendor or beauty anywhere on earth. We cannot describe it to you; we only know that God dwells there among men and that their Service surpasses the worship of all other places..." Learn more»
