At St. Nicholas, we wish to assist and care for our less fortunate sisters and brothers by supplying clean (preferably new) socks. These socks will be shared with the local PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) sites throughout the Village. Socks will be collected throughout the months of November and December in the gathering space at church. Your generosity will aid our new friends and will keep them blessedly warmer and more comfortable.

Several years ago now at St Nicholas, a beloved parishioner named Carmen McCall passed away. She was famous for her colorful socks, and so every year at this time I like to re-use this photo of her “Lovely and Amazing” socks to illustrate our annual drive to collect warm socks for those who need them.
The date of the memorial for our brother Tim Black has been set for Monday, November 25, 2013 at 4PM at St. Nicholas.
All are welcome to pay tribute to Tim, and pay their respects to his family.
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!
There were a number of national news articles covering the “Trunk or Treat” phenomenon – St Nicholas was slightly ahead of the curve because we held our Trunk or Treat event last Sunday after church.
Although your webmistress couldn’t be there, lots of St Nick’s folks were there – some in costume – with cars decorated to welcome little goblins and ghouls in search of treats with no tricks.
Douglas VanHouten uploaded a lot of fun photos to the St Nicholas Webpage, including Father Manny in the pumpkin patch:
