St. Nicholas Story and Traditions for Families

There is a tradition surrounding St Nicholas Day that is widely practiced all around the world, where children lay out their shoes the night before (on December 5th) in hopes that St Nicholas will pay them a visit. On December 6th, children will awake to find that St. Nicholas has come and secretly left chocolate gold coins for them! The giving of a small gift and oranges are sometimes associated with this feast day too!

Find a lot more about St. Nicholas and these traditions at:


“The things which are impossible with men are possible with God!” The rich ruler was called to give all that he had to follow Jesus. We are all called to do this in our own manner, and those called to vocations of monastic life and holy orders do so in a special way. Is a life of service and faithfulness to God and His Church as a priest, deacon, subdeacon, monk or nun something that may be for you or someone that you know?
