14th Sunday after Pentecost

O Lord, Save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance!

Grant victory over adversaries,

and by Thy cross preserve Thy habitation!


Tuesday, September 27th is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious Cross. Let us come together — on Monday evening for Vigil, on Tuesday morning for Liturgy, or both — to honor the Precious Cross and our Lord Who was crucified thereon for our sake.

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 we 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.
