From the staff at Saint Nicholas Catholic Church, we want to wish all of you many blessings and graces as we celebrate the great Feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Advent--A Season of Hope and Preparation

While the world around us tells us that it is already Christmas, our faith calls us to pull back from the whirlwind of activity and prepare not for presents under the treee, but the coming of Christ, the Lord of Life into our hearts and in the last days. Below are several articles to help in preparing ourselves for the Advent of our King!

Don't forget that we also have the Little Blue Books available for free at the entrances to the church which provide short reflections for each day of the Advent/Christmas season!


A Look at the Priesthood

CNN ran a documentary on the priesthood that was quite good. As we prepare to inaugurate our vocation chalice program on the First Sunday of Advent, I would encourage all of you to view and share this video!

 In episode 8 of This is Life with Lisa Ling she examines The Call to the Collar.

"Lisa travels to the Midwest, where more Catholic men are being drawn to the priesthood than anywhere else in the county, in a time where the Catholic population is on the rise, but the number of Catholic priests is dwindling." -Quoted from This is Life With Lisa Ling Youtube Channel


"The world needs preists that love Jesus, love the people, and I want to be one of those guys who can do that." -Interviewed Seminarian


 "This is a brotherhood. While they are young, despite feeling the weight of societal pressure, this life brings them overwhelming joy. They are exactly where they want to be." -Lisa Ling
