    Christ is Risen from the Dead, by death trampling down upon death, and to those in the tombs He is Granting Life!!! On Sunday morning, April 19, the Saint Nicholas Family joins the Orthodox world in celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ. We thank all of our faithful for worshipping with us from home using our enhanced online livestreaming services.

    Young Family "Holy Week from Home" Kits

    Posted last weekend on the Metropolis of Atlanta website was an extremely useful "Holy Week At Home" family kit. This kit was created by Fr. Sampson Kasapakis in Pensacola, FL as a way of keeping young families spiritually engaged during Holy Week. The lessons and activities contained inside take your family all the way up to the Feast of Pascha. It's never too late to enjoy the beauty of Holy Week with your Family, so feel free and use today with your children as we glorify Christ's Rising from the dead!
