Our Parish Picnic is here, at long last. This Saturday, July 19th, from 12noon to 4pm.
We’ll have food, games and fun on the front lawn, culminating with our 4:30 liturgy (weather permitting, we’ll worship outdoors). And, Little Boots Rodeo and Jack Groat will also provide some games and fun to share with one and all! St. Nicholas will supply the hot dogs and hamburgers. We ask volunteers and donors to bring side dishes, buns, snacks and some sweet treats, too.
For those who struggle with depression, anxiety, loneliness and despair: pray for peace in their hearts and souls.
For the homeless throughout the region who struggle to find housing now that the PADS sites are closed for the season: pray all our troubled sisters and brothers find security, safety and shelter.
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.. and anyone else in need of our continued prayers and well wishes.
For our military personnel who are overseas and engaged in battle: that they soon return home safe and secure.
For the members of the Support Groups at St. Nicholas who endure, “one day at at time,” in their daily battles against addiction.
*** “Prayers for those who have recently died…may they rest in the lasting peace of Christ Jesus, our Most Holy Redeemer”
