Welcome to St. Nicholas Cathedral!

Welcome to St. Nicholas Cathedral!

Our community of the faithful comes together here each Sunday and Feast Days to hear the Word of God, to say our Common Prayers, and to give thanks to the Lord in the Holy Eucharist.

Newest members are received by being baptized and chrismated; new families are created and blessed through the Sacrament of Marriage; prayers for the sick are said; blessings for different events are received and thanksgiving is offered.

It is the final stop for departed members, where the church gives them their last earthly farewell before they go to the Heavenly Father.

On weekdays it is a place of guided tours, private prayer, meditation, lighting of a candle, quiet reading of the Scripture, and appreciation of its beauty.

St. Nicholas is the Primatial Cathedral of the Autocephalous (self-governed) Orthodox Church in America. Orthodoxy came to Alaska two hundred years ago, spread to the continental US and now has more than 2 million faithful in all jurisdictions.

Founded in 1930 as a Russian Church, we acquired the current property in 1951, completed the present church in 1962 and became a Cathedral in 1978. The fresco icons, completed in 1992-94, are expressed in a tradition that originates at the very beginnings of Christianity. Icons are “the windows to heaven”; through the centuries they bring to all, especially the illiterate, the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ (a video on iconography).

We hope that you will keep in your heart the memory of your visit to our Cathedral!

May God keep you safe and spiritually reward you in your life’s journey!
