St. Nicholas Day Celebration

Sunday, December 4 after the 9:00AM Mass

We will celebrate St. Nicholas Day for all the children in the parish on December 4. Traditionally, small gifts were given on this day in honor of St. Nicholas, who, in more recent times, has morphed into Santa Claus (from the Dutch Sinterklaas). Santa will greet the children and distribute small gifts.
