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.

Christmas Is Coming! Gifts Of Time and (Singing) Talent Available Soon!

How about a CD (or several) of the St. Nicholas Choir?

The choir of St. Nicholas will release its second CD, Noel: Christmas at St. Nicholas Episcopal Church, in November.

We would be honored if you would support this endeavor and purchase one or more copies. The choir has decided to donate a portion of the revenue to the Capital Campaign Fund. To help us in planning, you may pre-order your CDs at this link. No payment is due until the CDs are in hand.
