Venerable Nicholas, Archbishop of Thessaloniki

St. Nicholas of Thessaloniki (Feast Day - November 29)


Nicholas cared for his people,
Victoriously persuading and guiding towards their purpose.

Venerable Nicholas, Archbishop of Thessaloniki, met his end in peace.

He is listed in the Synaxarion of Constantinople and the Menaion to be commemorated on November 29th. According to scant evidence provided by Metropolitan Anthimos Alexoudes of Amasia, the only Nicholas to serve as Archbishop of Thessaloniki besides Nicholas Cabasilas (+ 1391) was one that served in the year 160. We have no further information about him.
