Our parish was formally organized in 1895 and personally supported by the last czar of Imperial Russia, St. Czar Nicholas II, who declared: "Let there be an Orthodox Church in Galveston." To this day, our parish houses the same beautiful icons and gospel book donated by the czar himself.
Our parish is also the resting place of the great Rev. Archimandrite Theoclitos (Triantafilides), the czar's childhood tutor who is buried beneath the altar and considered by some to be a saint.
