Fr Nicholas Livingston was born and raised in Santa Cruz, California. After initially pursuing a degree in kinesiology and physiology, he felt continually drawn to ministry in the church, and eventually moved cross-country, graduating from Hellenic College with a bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies in 2012 and from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology with a Master’s of Divinity in 2017.
Upon his graduation from seminary, Fr Nicholas was assigned as the pastoral assistant at the parish of St. Spyridon Cathedral in Worcester, MA. He was ordained by His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios of Boston as a deacon on March 7th, 2018, and as a priest on March 11th, 2018, and continued to serve at the parish of St. Spyridon as the assistant priest until his transfer to Nashua, NH on November 1st, 2020.
Fr Nicholas is married to his wife Nikoletta. He has a passion for Byzantine music, and believes that the liturgical life of the parish is the well from which everything else flows: not only are there plenty of roles for all people to participate in the services, but the services themselves are rich with teachings and opportunities for personal transformation.
