St. Nicholas hosts an annual Epiphany celebration on January 6, in which Greek Orthodox boys aged 16 to 18 dive into Spring Bayou to retrieve a white wooden cross, said to bring the finder blessings for the year. It is the largest such event in the Western Hemisphere, with thousands in attendance. A statue of an epiphany diver is located in front of the church.

  • Absolutely Amazing Church! It’s in a historic Area in Tarpon Springs Florida. The Cathedral is Beautiful. I like going in once in a while and lighting a candle. It’s very peaceful. This Greek Orthodox Church is a Must See if you are in The Tarpon Springs area! Here are some Pictures of the Church inside and outside as well.
  • What a beautiful cathedral! The architecture and art work involved in this church is beyond amazing! Just being there is so peaceful. I highly recommend a visit to this church. Just so beautiful!
  • Very Good Church. The people are so kind. Best church around.
  • Wonderful services there but I am amazed especially with the help they give there especially to the poor and the stuff they provide to them... huge blessing for the community and god give them health and strength to carry on... such a lovely priests as well and I am so honored to meet them in person...
  • Small church with lots of colorful windows, you shouldn’t be worry about parking space because they are many spaces available around the church.
