Sunday, the 6th of December is St. Nicholas Day. He was the patron saint of sailors, the poor and children. Our children will be having a special treat for us at the 9:15 a.m. service. We’d like to collect toys for the needier children in our neighboring communities on this day. Our children will be on hand to collect them for distribution on the 6th.

December is a busy and rewarding month at SJD. Find details by clicking the “Revelations” icon in column at right.
