Membership In The Church
A member is someone who is an active participant in the spiritual life of the parish. This means they are striving to comply in their life with the teachings of the Holy Orthodox Faith, attend Liturgy regularly on Sundays and Holy Days, receive the Sacraments on a regular basis and contribute to the best of their ability as directed by their conscience in support of the Church.
How is the Church Supported?
St. Nicholas Church is fully self-supporting and receives no supplemental funding from our Diocese. the entirety of the parish operating budget comes from weekly offerings and fundraisers. As part of our parish stewardship initiative, all parishioners are encouraged to offer their time, talent and treasures in support of our parish.
Contributing To the Parish
Parishioners and friends of the parish may offer their support in the form of weekly donations in the offering basket, or by mail to St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, 903 Ann St.,Homestead, PA 15120. Those who prefer to contribute "on-line" may do so through their bank's on-line bill paying service. There is usually no charge, and contributers can set up recurring donations.

Concerning prayer in church, know that it is higher than prayers at home, for it is raised by a whole group of people, among which many are most pure prayers, offering to God from humble hearts, which He accepts as fragrant incense.
