Joyous Feast of St Nicholas to All! Dec 6/19th 2015


A Joyous Feast to all!  St Nicholas guard us with your prayers!

Thy works of justice did reveal thee to thy community as a canon of faith, the likeness of humility and the teacher of abstinence, O father and great Bishop Nicholas. Wherefore by humility thou didst achieve exaltation, and by thy meekness wealth; intercede therefore with Christ that He will save our souls. Troparion in the 4th Tone to St. Nicholas

Churches dedicated to St. Nicholas in the NW are Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Seattle,  Sfântul Nicolae in BC, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Portland,  St Nicholas and Dimitrios in Vancouver, BC,  St Nicholas in Vancouver, BC,  St Nicholas in Tacoma, and St Nicholas Western Rite Parish in Spokane.

Since today is a such a Joyous Day,  I am including this lovely video in honor of St Nicholas.  The video has nothing to do with the NW, but it does honor St Nicholas and is a beautifully done and uplifting.  Enjoy and a Joyous Feast to all!

Looking for ideas, crafts, songs, or wish to learn more about St Nicholas and how he is celebrated around the world.  Check out the St. Nicholas Center a portal of info for everyones favorite Saint.
