St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church

St. Nicholas Visit


St. Nicholas visits the church on the Sunday closest to St. Nicholas Day, December 6th. He asks children about what they've been learning in Sunday School. The children have a song or prayer to recite for him. St. Nicholas then tells a story before giving gifts of chocolate coins, gingerbread and oranges. The three things are in a small bag to remind the children of the Trionity.
