Preservation efforts with ROSSIA begin

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 preserve the church for the next generation of Juneau worshippers and the thousands of people from all over the world that visit our church via cruise ship each summer.

Tax deductable donations, marked “preservation”, can be sent to:

St. Nicholas receives the Sam McClain Watercolor collection

Unpacking the Collection - 03/07/11

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 on March 7, 2011, Scott Carlee from the Juneau Arts and Culture Center came to St. Nicholas as we unpacked some of this historic collection.

We hope to be able to hold a public exhibit of the entire collection in the near future.  We also hope to digitally scan the collection and display it on our website.
