Hand-Beaded Aers for Tlingit Clergy

Fr. Michael Williams is the only Tlingit ever ordained as an Orthodox Priest.  He fell alseep in the Lord in 1994.  These Aers were made by Matshka Anna Wiliams for his ordination in 1972.  They are slightly damaged, but we hope to repair them so that they can be preserved for future generations.

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!
