Over the years, rapid increase in parish attendance would prove the modest floor plan of the Mercy House chapel to be unable to sustain its growth. In 1995, parishioners numbered in the single digits; today that number is closer to 75. To accommodate its development, the community needed an additional home. Though weekday services continued to be celebrated at Mercy House, the Sunday morning Divine Liturgy began, by necessity, to be served in a new location. In the late 90s, with gratitude to God and enthusiastic about its growth, the parish faithful began worshipping on Sunday mornings, first, in the Synodal Cathedral of Our Lady of the Sign on 93rd Street, and later, in the Patriarchal Cathedral of St. Nicholas on 97th Street. Today, this lively and diverse community cherishes both its original home in Mercy House, and also, its second home in the beautiful St. Nicholas Cathedral. As a parish family, the lay membership of Mercy House are thankful to now also be known as the St. Nicholas English-Language Parish.
