BRIEF HISTORY OF SAINT NICHOLAS GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH
The desire for providing Greek Religious Education and keeping the faith were the inspiration of the first families of the Greek Orthodox Community of Fort Pierce.
The handful of Greek residents back in the late 1950’s were determined to achieve their goals. Monthly informal meetings, socials, picnics and religious hymn singing were very much a part of the community. These informal meetings took place at the old schoolhouse at the corner of Indrio Road and Emerson Road.
Hard benches served as the seats and minutes of the gatherings were taken on a small card table. Very humble beginnings for our community.
Years of dedication, perseverance, enthusiasm, and some disappointments ensued, but the Christian faith never waivered and soon began to intensify. On special occasions, Father Demosthenes Mekras of Miami and Father Stephen Anthony of West Palm Beach would travel to Fort Pierce to offer sacraments, prayers and blessings in the homes of the early members.
