Why are we known as “Greek Orthodox”?
It reflects our historical background:

The term “Greek Orthodox” simply indicates that our Church has its geographic roots where the Apostles — Paul, Timothy, Luke and Silas — first preached in Greek-speaking regions of Asia Minor and Macedonia. Similarly, “Roman Catholic” designates that Church which has its roots in Rome.

Obviously the Roman Catholic Church is not just for Romans or Italians, any more than the Greek Orthodox Church is just for Greeks!

Referring to an Orthodox Church as “Greek,” “Russian,” “Syrian,” “Romanian,” etc. is comparable to speaking about a Roman Catholic Church as “Italian,” “French,” “Polish,” “Irish,” etc.

The founding members of Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church were immigrants from Greece and their America-born children. They established a church for all Orthodox Christians living here, and for all wishing to embrace the ancient, Biblical, Apostolic, Orthodox Christian faith.

Who are we affiliated with?
The Ecumenical Patriarchate:

The adjective “Greek” also identifies us as a parish of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Denver.

The Metropolis is one of eight dioceses in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.

The Archdiocese, in turn, is an Eparchy (province) of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

We are under the immediate spiritual and ecclesiastical jurisdiction of His Eminence Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver.

We are an American parish for everyone!
