Classes will begin on Wednesday, February 8th, at 6:30 p.m. We will meet again every Wednesday from 6:30-7:30. (Father Christodoulos would like to note that Adult Religious Education is at the same time, so bring the kids and join him in the library for class.) The fee for the classes is $50 per child. As you may be aware, new dance costumes were purchased last year, and it was planned for the dancers to do fundraising to cover these expenses. All children age 6 and over are invited to participate. Registration Forms are available in the Church Office

WE NEED YOUR HELP: St. Nicholas’ parish is blessed with so many creative individuals with so many talents. We are searching for volunteers to bring their creativity to the table. The only way we can make the 90th Anniversary event memorable and successful is with the help of everyone. We are also searching for old photos and memories to share with everyone. If you have any photos could you please email them to George Danos at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or bring them into church and we can scan them. If you would like to contribute your talents to this event we are having a meeting February, 8 at 6 o’clock in the library. Any questions please call Dorothy Mezilson Pavlick @ 708-203-6402. Saint Nicholas parishioners can move mountains when they work together doing work for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
