Honor A Loved One With Flowers

Aside

poinsettias

Each Christmas and Easter at St. Nicholas we invite the community to honor and remember our dearly departed loved ones with flowers.

We are nearing the joyful feast of the Nativity of Jesus. If you like to provide funding for flowers to festoon the church, please know how grateful we are.

Place your donation in a specially marked envelope with your name, the name(s) of those you wish to remember and the amount of your offering. You may place this in the collection basket at the weekend services or you can pass it on to Manny.

In advance, thank you one and all. Let’s make Christmas truly merry with beautiful flowers that give honor to our loved ones as well as praise and glory to the New Born King.

To Fr. Scott Barron who joined us for worship last weekend. Thank you, Scott and we do hope you’ll come again…our doors are always open.

To our Fearless Food Pantry Team of Bob Kalicki, Vince Otero, Jeff Westerheide and Gary Lackey who ventured to the food warehouse in Romeoville and restocked our sadly depleted pantry shelves. Santa’s elves don’t stand a chance against you guys. Great work!

To Cyndi DeBock who pitched in and picked up our December Jarosch baked goods . . . thanks for your kindness with all the sweet treats, Cyndi.

St Nicholas Episcopal Church presents Harvest Fair: a Gathering of Artisans
It's TODAY! The First Annual Harvest Fair: A Gathering of Artisans starts NOW at St Nicholas Episcopal Church. Find treasures and beautiful decorative items for your home, jewelry, handmade soy candles and soaps, and Christmas decorations galore. There's a raffle table, a selection of delicious baked goods, and much more, and if you're hungry, there's a big pot of chili on the stove, sloppy Joes, cake, and coffee for purchase. Proceeds will benefit programs here at St Nicholas Episcopal Church, and there are lots of great vendors offering wonderfully creative hand-made items besides.
