The Nancy Parish

The French-Romanian Orthodox Parish is a young parish. The church has as holy patrons the Saints Peter and Paul and Saint Nicholas. The parish consists of Orthodox believers of different nationalities: Albanian, French, Georgian, Greek, Lebanese, Romanian, Russian, Moldovan, Serbian and Ukrainian.

The parish belongs to the Romanian Orthodox Metropolitanate of Central and Meridional Europe of the Romanian Orthodox Patriarchate. The services are officiated in French and Romanian. Our Creed and Our Father are recited in several languages.

Since spring of 2011, the Orthodox parish in Nancy had to move because the Catholic church asked us to leave the crypt of the Saint Pierre church in Nancy, where the parish had been operating since 2001. The crypt is now being used by the Catholic Church, as the Saint Pierre church is closed for important construction works. During this period, the parish undertook many efforts to find a new place of worship. Only recently, through God’s mercy, we moved to a devastated chapel of the former Maringer hospital in Nancy. The former hospital was bought by the Batigère enterprise to build apartments. The parish contacted this enterprise, which offered the chapel for sale as soon as the urbanism plan was over. On June 29, 2016, a sales promise between the parish and the Batigère company was signed by the notary.
