This past Sunday, December 19th, the Orthodox world celebrated the feast of one of its
greatest and most loved saints. Hardly is there an Orthodox city which
does not have at least one altar dedicated in his name. We are blessed to have four in our city; St. Nicholas Cathedral, St. Nicholas Church,
the side altar at the Old Holy Virgin Cathedral, and a side altar here
at the 'Joy of All Who Sorrow' Cathedral. Please take a moment to read
the life of St. Nicholas compiled by Father Irenei.
