St Nicholas Visits

St. Nicholas visited the St. Tudor and St. David parish churches in Mynyddislwyn and Oakdale the first weekend in December. The next week he went to St. Mary's and St. Augustine's in Penllwyn and Pontllanfraith. At all churches he gave bags of gold chocolate to everyone. The homily reflected St. Nicholas' true idenity, drawing a contrast to the more commercialized Father Christmas and Santa. St. Nicholas made his first visit to hese parishes in 2010.
