Breakfast with St. Nicholas


Saint Nicholas has long visited St. Christopher's on the Sunday nearest his feast day to tell his story. New, unwrapped toys are collected for a local outreach group as part of the day. A Breakfast with St. Nicholas has been added, giving new life and focus to the annual bazaar. Children are photographed with St. Nicholas, who gives each one a goody bag with gold chocolate coins and a St. Nicholas bookmark, sticker, and prayer card. Good publicity brings many visitors from outside the parish.
