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.


St. Nicholas and the other North Texas Orthodox Churches are participating in the 40 days for life Vigil by praying together outside Dallas's late-term abortion clinic on Wednesday, October 19th. See Father's blog post for details. You can also help by saying a short prayer for the victims of abortion (not only the babies, but also their mothers and those who work in the industry) each day.
