St. Nicholas’ Day falls during Advent, when families begin thinking about Christmas.
But during this busy time of year, we are also focused on how to keep ourselves and our children connected to the central message of God’s love – the birth of Jesus – a message that often gets lost in the wider cultural observance of the Christmas season.
St. Nicholas, the 4th century Bishop, forms a bridge between true discipleship of Christ, and the cultural icon that populates the imagination of most Christian children. Celebrating St. Nicholas’ Day helps children connect their faith with everyday life, and to learn how to be more giving and generous to others.
Please join us from 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. on December 2ndin the Parish Hall for breakfast together, tree trimming, ornament making, family activities, and perhaps even a visit from the Old Saint himself. Bring a friend… and wear your pajamas!
