Also, Saint Nicholas is compiling a list of individuals who would be interested in picking up fellow parishioners who do not have a ride to church. If you are interested in helping us in this very important ministry, please call the office. It is our hope that everyone who wants to come to Saint Nicholas will be able, whether they can drive or not. Thank you.
