As part of our commitment to serving those in need, we are organizing a food drive throughout the month of December. Please consider donating non-perishable food items, such as canned goods, pasta, and rice, to support local families facing food insecurity. Collection bins will be available in the church foyer.
We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our various ministries. Whether you have a talent for music, a passion for teaching, or a heart for social justice, there is a place for you at St. Nicholas Catholic Church. Get involved and make a difference in our community!
Deepen your understanding of Scripture by participating in our weekly Bible Study sessions. Led by knowledgeable facilitators, these sessions provide an opportunity to explore the Word of God in a supportive and engaging environment. Join us every Wednesday at 7:00 PM in the parish hall.
If you are interested in having your child baptized or if you are an adult seeking baptism, please contact our parish office to begin the sacramental preparation process. We are here to guide and support you on this important journey of faith.
First Holy Communion and Confirmation
For children in second grade and older, we offer sacramental preparation programs for First Holy Communion and Confirmation. These programs provide a comprehensive formation in the Catholic faith and prepare children to receive these sacraments. Please contact our religious education office for more information.
If you or a loved one is in need of prayers, we invite you to submit your prayer requests to our parish office. Our faith community will join you in prayer for your intentions. Let us support one another through the power of prayer.

Our St. Vincent de Paul Society is dedicated to serving those in need within our community. If you require assistance or know someone who does, please contact our society president, Mrs. Johnson. We are here to provide support in times of hardship.
Visiting the Sick and Homebound
