Feast Day of St. Nicholas

Today began with a special Mass dedicated to St. Nicholas. Mrs. Hollis’ class did a fabulous job leading our school. So, who was St. Nicholas? He was a historical figure whose story begins in a town called Myra (Turkey). When St. Nicholas’ parents died, Nicholas used his whole inheritance to help the sick, poor, and those suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need and his love for children. He died December 6, AD 343 in Myra. His gift-giving gave rise to who we now call Santa Clause (St.Nick)

We celebrated the Feast Day with hot chocolate and cookies. A big thank you to all of the parents who organized the treats for us today. We are grateful!
