Welcome to St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, McKinney Texas, 20 miles N of Dallas!

We are diverse community of Orthodox Christians from all parts of the globe. Some of us are emigres from Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Bulgaria and other Orthodox nations, while others are American converts to Orthodoxy. We have all found the "Pearl of great price" in the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Eastern Orthodox Christian Church, and we hope that this web page will give you (in English and some Russian) a taste of our beliefs, dogmas, doctrines and way of life.

The Divine Liturgy and other services are performed in English, with some Church Slavonic. We gladly welcome visitors and inquirers and always have a complimentary meal on Sunday to get acquainted.
