Finnish Orthodox Information about Saint Nicholas
Part of the Saint Nicholas Page honoring Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker
The Orthodox Church of Finland is one of two state-supported churches in Finland, the other being Evangelical Lutheran. Because of its unique position among Orthodox Christian churches in the West as a state church, it is the lone autonomous Orthodox Church to celebrate Pascha ("Easter") according to the Civil/Gregorian calendar used by Roman Catholic and Protestant Churches rather than the Church/Julian calendar. See also the official site of the Finnish Orthodox Church, in English.
