God is mindful of our good intentions. God hears us when we pray regardless of where we are. We at St. Nicholas look forward to welcoming you back to Church, to those familiar sights and sounds and faces, very soon. May God bless us as we forge forward, experiencing this new facet and mystery of the communion and community we share regardless of distance.
Wonderful resources you can pray along with in English and Albanian below:
Holy Transfiguration - Monastery in Ellwood City, PA - live stream their services and archived collection of videos from past services available for viewing.
Church of Albania's site - live broadcasts, lectures, and cached presentations can be found in Albanian.

The physical church doors are closed, yet the church, our communty and prayers, continue strong.
Last night Metropolitan Tikhon, supervising bishop of our archdiocese, issued instructions that all parishes are to close their doors until April 1. We take this step in order to protect the most vulnerable. We take this step in order to be good neighbors and citizens in all our communities. As Christian people, we pray to that God Who has given us souls and bodies. Our attention to the health of both is part of our Christian way of life. Our attention to those whose needs may be different than our own is also part of our Christian life.
In these coming weeks as we are not able to come together for services, we invite you to pray from afar and to remember that, in keeping this discipline of distance, your acts, your life, your intentions can be made holy through the love and care that they embody.
