Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was established in 1927 and has enriched the lives of many Eastern Orthodox Christians through countless Divine Liturgies, Sacraments,  and religious programs.  Our community includes Orthodox Christians mostly of Hellenic heritage, but also of other traditionally Orthodox ethnic backgrounds as well as of purely American roots.

We are located in Oak Lawn, Illinois, 12 miles south of downtown Chicago.  For directions, please click here

Our church offers many different ministries and programs for all age groups to further spiritual growth and community fellowship.

Our parish is under the guidance of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago, which is part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and under the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
