St. Nicholas Orthodox Church was founded in 1893, at the request of the local Tlingit community. Constructed locally by Tlingit people and Serbian miners in 1893-94, the church was built on land donated by Yees Ganalax and using plans and funds sent from Russia. Furnished, decorated, and outfitted by generous gifts from the Russian Mission Society, the church was consecrated by Bishop Nikolai (Ziorov) in 1894, the church has been a fixture of the Juneau community and landscape ever since.

We invite you to browse the site and share our joy, vision, and hope; all rooted in a firm faith in our Risen Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ.  

If you are in Juneau, we invite you to join us each week as we worship the Holy Trinity in spirit and in truth.
