Prayers Of and For The People


For our Fr. Tony Begonja who is undergoing two cataract surgeries. Pray the second procedure is as successful as the first and Tony’s vision is crystal clear and he’s up and around in no time at all.

For those who are affected by the Ebola crisis: that the medical field will find that which will ease the suffering and pain while calming the fears this disease has created.

For prayers answered and blessings received.

For all our St. Nicholas community members who are under the weather and in need of healing and prayers: may they find peace and be blessed with sound and better health: Connie, Joanne, Vernon Forde, Dale, Richard, Eunice Dohra, Paula, Jim, Jackie, Chris, Cathy, Ed, Carrie, June, Harry and any one else in need of our continued prayers and well wishes.

For the members of the Support Groups at St. Nicholas who endure, “one day at at time,” in their daily battles against addiction.

Congratulations Eagle Scout Richard Franzen!

The Community of St. Nicholas is very proud of you!


He came into St. Nicholas ever so quietly and when he completed his work, he left us all in awe. Richard Franzen asked about how he could help us “fix-up” our gardens and do something with the vegetable patch that was in mighty sad shape.

Well, we marvel at the work he and his fellow scouts did to the grounds of our church. Not a day passes that some one doesn’t shout out “Wow, what beautiful gardens you have!” And ever so right they are.

On Sunday, October 26th, at 3:30pm at the Faith Community Church of Christ in Bensenville, our young friend Richard will be presented his rightful award of Eagle Scout.

Let us raise our collective voices and send out a loud and heart-felt CONGRATULATIONS! What Richard has given us is a living legacy…gardens that will always remind us what young minds and hands can truly do to change our world for the good and better.

God bless you, Richard and again, know how very proud we are of you.
