On December 21, 2008, St. Nicholas visited our parish Christmas party bringing goodies for each child as well as the ladies. Each man also received a small wheat ornament. We started the meal with the youth (and some adults) singing Boh Predvichny. After a very yummy and bountiful potluck meal, St. Nicholas appeared. We finished the party with singing Christmas carols by beautiful voices.
St. Nicholas is the giving saint. We decided to honor him by collecting needed items for the Stony Plain Youth Centre and gift cards for a single mom in need.
