Saint Nicholas: A Celebration for Children
Saint Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, will visit the Shrine on Saturday, December 5, about 1:00 PM!
Saint Nicholas enjoys meeting children (and their parents)!
He will tell them:
- the story of his life
- how he became a saint
- how “Saint Nicholas” became “Santa Claus”
Best of all, he loves to tell the story of the first Christmas!
Saint Nicholas will hand out some little remembrances for the children and will be available for photos.
