    Parish Statement on Covid 19 As Erie County enters the Green Phase of reopening, St. Nicholas is also slowly reopening. The following guidelines are to be followed during this phase of reopening.

    • If you are sick or have ANY symptoms of COVID19, STAY HOME. We will not be taking your temperature at the door. But please, for the safety of your neighbor, if you are ill, stay home.

    • Social distancing will still be enforced. You will be able to seat yourselves in whatever pew you would like provided that there is AT LEAST 6 feet of space between you and any other parishioners. For reference, the pews are spaced three feet apart. There will be an usher to greet you at the door as usual who might ask you to move after you sit down. We ask that you follow the instructions of the usher in ensuring the social distancing guidelines.

    • Wash and sanitize your hands upon entering the church. • Masks are strongly suggested and encouraged!  • At this time, we are not yet open to outside visitors.

    Adult Class Our adult class is currently on summer break. Classes will resume in the fall.

If you would like to go to confession, it is by appointment only until further notice— NO EXCEPTIONS. All confessions will take place with appropriate social distance measures.
