Our church, the oldest extant Orthodox building in Lincoln, was constructed by Ukrainian immigrants in the 1920s and ever since has been used until the parish, Three Hierarchs, had closed in 2009. After attempts were made to revitalize the church, it was eventually taken over by the Nebraska Exarchate and its parish, Saints Simon and Jude Eastern Orthodox Christian Church.

“Here we cannot boast of great numbers, neither of renown, nor of wealth, nor of learning – all that is valued in this world. We are strong here only in one thing — in possessing the true Orthodox faith and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God (Eph. 2:8), and we should ask the Lord for the increase of this gift. Let them stand fast in Thy Holy Church in the Orthodox Faith.”
(St. Tikhon, Patriarch of Moscow, speaking on the American Orthodox situation, 1865-1925)
