1. Believe it or not, it is time to start thinking about our
parish feast day, St. Nicholas Day. While the feast
itself falls on December 6, we will observe it on the
following Sunday, December 7. If anyone would like
to step in and coordinate the festivities, please tell Fr.
James.
2. If you have not made a pledge yet for next year, please
consider doing so. Not only does it give us an idea how
much money we will have to budget with for the coming
year, but under the new bylaws one of the qualifications to
be a member at St. Nicholas is that a person or family helps
support the Church. Bear in mind that the pledge is not
binding, and if it becomes necessary for a person to
contribute less than his or her pledge there are no
consequences to that. Please consider this prayerfully, and
deliver your pledge card to Fr. James, who will also answer
any questions that you may have.

Post Communion Prayers
+++++
While Holy Communion is reserved for Orthodox Christians who
prepare themselves by prayer and fasting, non-Orthodox visitors
are welcome to come forward to venerate the cross and receive
the Antidoron (blessed bread) at the conclusion of the service.
+++++
Forget for at least this space of time the bustle and concerns of
everyday life. Be like an angel, filled only with thoughts of God and of
serving Him. After all, He is present now, and is blessing you. Hieromartyr Seraphim (Zvezdinsky), Bishop of Dmitrov (1883c.1937)
+++++
St. Nicholas Orthodox Church is a mission parish of the
American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese, under His Grace,
Bishop Gregory.
