We need your help.  Our historic building is showing the signs of its 117 years of continuous use.  The foundations are insufficient, the bell-tower has been removed since 2007 to prevent its collapse, and historic artifacts, such as the 117 year old Epitaphion/Plashchanitsa are dangerously unprotected.

In conjunction with R.O.S.S.I.A. (Russian Orthodox Sacred Sites in Alaska), we are embarking on a major historic preservation project to repair these problems, and to preserve the church for the next generation of Juneau worshippers and the thousands of tourists and visitors from all over the world that visit our church each summer.

Tax deductable donations, marked “preservation”, can be sent to St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, P.O. Box 20130, Juneau, Alaska 99802-0130.

Sam McClain Collection

The Sam McClain Watercolors, painted in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s as a way to preserve Alaska’s threatened Orthodox Treasures, were donated to the Diocese of Alaska by Bruce Kendall.  St. Nicholas has been chosen to house and preserve this fantastic collection, and it is on display after Divine Liturgy every Sunday and on select weekdays.  Come and see!
