Nicholas: A Saint for Christmas

Jesus was born in a Bethlehem stable, but Jesus came to find a home in our hearts.

Saint Nicholas reminds us what happens when people respond to the gift of God’s love.

Nicholas was born about seventeen centuries ago in Kessarea,  now in the country of Turkey. He was a kindly bishop known for his

generosity to the poor. He gave away his money to those in need, but he tried to do it secretly so no one would know he was

responsible. When people found out and praised Nicholas, he reminded them that God is the source of all goodness.

Some children used to leave their shoes out the night before St. Nicholas Day (December 6) in the hope that they will find treats there in the morning – left by a secret giver who is filled with the love of Jesus.

May you Open Wide the Door of your heart this Christmas to the gift of Jesus – there is no secret giver!

May you share that gift of love with those around you, and also to those that don’t know Jesus.

Thank you for your love and support of our School.

May the New Year bring you and your families health, joy and everything you have wished for.
