History of our Parish

Saint Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church is a vibrant and dynamic Christian community in Southeast Charlotte. We received our charter from His Eminence, Metropolitan Alexios of Atlanta, in August of 1998, and the Lord continues to bring us new members who enhance our loving church family. We invite you into our community and welcome you to become a part of our parish family. We look forward to getting to know you and for you to know all of us.

Our Patron Saint

Our patron is Saint Nektarios of Aegina, the Wonderworker. Saint Nektarios, a modern-day saint and one of the most widely known of Greek Orthodox saints, was canonized in 1961, and is buried in Aegina, Greece. October 18, 2002, is a milestone in the history of our young parish. A portion of the relic of our beloved patron was brought from Aegina, and is housed in a special reliquary for veneration by Orthodox faithful from near and far. This is a great honor for our community, and with it comes an awesome responsibility. 

Our Mission

Saint Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church is dedicated to the continuation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s ministry of salvation through the proclamation and teaching of the Gospel; through Baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and through loving service to God and to mankind. The Saint Nektarios community welcomes and encourages everyone to participate in the body of Christ through the Orthodox Church. We feel blessed by your interest in our community.

We are a parish that thrives on donations of time, talent, and treasure. Our entire operating budget is funded by pledges received from the members of our parish. Each member determines the level at which he or she is able to give. There is no minimum stewardship required in order to be a member; however, one must sign a pledge card and be active in the liturgical life of the community to vote.
