Ss. Peter & Paul Byzantine Catholic Church

Tarentum, Pennsylvania, USA

Sunday Worship and Lunch
As Nicholas is the patron saint of the Byzantine rite, Ss. Peter and Paul has a children's liturgy in honor of the good saint. The children present gifts of non-perishable food and a hymn to Saint Nicholas is sung. A luncheon follows the Liturgy. Bells ring, announcing St. Nicholas. He enters and takes his seat. All the children go to him and receive a bag of treats. The parish also attends the Annual Saint Nicholas Banquet of the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh.
