St. Nick or Santa?
On Sunday, December 3 (the first Sunday of Advent) at the 9 am service, a favorite saint -- considered the true Santa -- will visit our St. Nicholas Chapel.
St. Nicholas will share the story of his life. Born into a wealthy family in what is now Turkey over 1700 years ago, Nicholas used his inheritance to help the needy. He became the bishop of Myra in recognition of his faithful service. He died on December 6, in the year 343. Watch for his miter (bishop’s hat)!
Last year St. Nicholas shared chocolate coins—even gluten, soy and nut-free coins. Please return the favor to St. Nick by bringing canned food for the Larimer County Food Bank.
St. Nicholas’ feast day falls at the beginning of Advent, a time of preparation for the birth of Jesus. Will your family visit only Santa in Old Town, or a saint of the church?
