Announcements

We have a list of things our parish needs. If you or somebody you know wish to supply one of these items, please contact us.

 


We will be holding our annual membership and pledge drive in September. If you consider St. Nicholas your parish home, please consider filling out a membership form. In addition, new and continuing members are encouraged to fill out a financial pledge form. This is a good-faith estimate of your monthly contributions for 2012, so that the treasurer can generate a relatively accurate budget for the year.

 

Both forms are available in the literature rack in the narthex of the Church, or can be requested by email from Dn. Nicholas.

 


Sunday, September 11th is the annual commemoration of the beheading of St. John the Baptist. Recognizing that this act of violence against God's prophet took place largely because of feasting and drunkenness, we fast on this day. Wine and oil are allowed.
