Saint Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church is a parish of the Byzantine-Ruthenian Metropolitan Province of Pittsburgh, The Most Reverend William C. Skurla, Metropolitan Archbishop, in the Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Passaic, The Most Reverend Kurt Burnette, Bishop. We are an Eastern Catholic Church in full Communion with the Church of Rome, and Pope Francis is our spiritual head. Our historical roots are in Eastern Europe, but we are open to all who come through our doors.

Celebration of Holy Days are typically on the day of the Feast, at 7:00 PM; please check our calendar for our monthly schedule.

As part of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, our Holy Father Francis, Pope of Rome, has asked that the tradition of the Opening of the Holy Doors in Rome be extended to all Eparchies and Dioceses around the world. Because of the vast area of our Eparchy, Bishop Kurt has directed certain parishes in the various Syncellates of the Eparchy to serve this purpose in addition to our Cathedral in Passaic, New Jersey. Saint Nicholas Parish will be available for special times of prayer, special events, and for Confession throughout the year for all those seeking God's mercy and grace! May God's mercy shine upon all who call upon Him with faith and love as we journey through this special time!
