St. Nicholas Ukrainian Orthodox Church
AN URGENT APPEAL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS!
Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
GLORY BE TO OUR LORD!
As the news agencies around the world have informed, the situation in Ukraine has become worse, almost beyond comprehension - the invasion of Russian Federation of Independent Ukraine.
It appears that the lessons of history have not been learned and the murder of the citizenry and destruction of Ukrainian land are utilized to advance geopolitical agenda of the Russian Federation.
In the past we have urged our faithful, if they have a desire to do so, to contribute funds in support of our charitable aid efforts. However, as the nation of Ukraine defends itself against aggression - we are issuing this urgent appeal for contributions, which will be delivered in person to the proper individuals, for the medical care of the thousands of people who have been injured, some very severely, during these difficult days. Your contribution may be the primary reason that another human being receives the treatment necessary for survival.
We must stress that time is of the essence. Our goal is to get these contributions into the hands of those who need them as soon as we can! The most expedient method for making such donations for this cause would be to utilize our secure online donation link.
Contributions may be also sent by special postal delivery to the Consistory at P. O. Box, 495, South Bound Brook, NJ 08880 or they may be hand delivered to the Consistory office at 135 Davidson Avenue, Somerset, NJ 08873, marked "LET’S HELP UKRAINE".
We must make it clear that we are making this appeal not out of any political point of view, but rather, out of our stated concern for the dignity and sanctity of human life. If it is in your heart to respond to this appeal, please do not delay.
We pray for our Lord’s blessings upon the Ukrainian people and their nation.
In His all-encompassing Love,
+ ANTONY, Metropolitan
+ DANIEL, Bishop

Welcome to St nicholas Ukrainian Orthodox Church
St. Nicholas was founded by Ukrainian believers over 100 years ago, but is open and welcomes all believers and those seeking an experience of the Most Holy Trinity. Like the Holy Apostle Philip said to Nathaniel when they were first being called to be disciples of our Lord, “Come and See" (John 1:46). Our invitation is to everyone and accordingly our services are almost entirely in the English language, and service books are provided for every service so that you can pray actively with us.
