Almsgiving

There are several almsgiving opportunities at St. Nicholas! We always accept donations for our food pantry, but you can find details about other short term projects and opportunities below:

FALL 2018
The children of St. Nicholas have organized a drive for RIFA's Snack Backpack Program. You can find the donation box in the narthex. Great items for donation include: Pop-Tarts, Ramen Noodles (chicken or beef), Microwave Popcorn (individually wrapped), Apple Sauce (with foil lids), Oatmeal (single serve packs), Chicken Noodle Soup (with pop-tops), Ravioli (single serve with pop-tops), Macaroni & Cheese (individual packets/bowls)


ONGOING ALMSGIVING OPPORTUNITIES
:


Food Pantry:
Donate money to the ongoing ministry of St. Nicholas, which includes the support of our priest, liturgical life, benevolence, and outreach.

Donate food items to St. Brigid's Food Pantry and the Little Free Pantry.

Parish and liturgical needs:
Donate books to our parish library. Our collection includes books on Orthodox spirituality, patristics, scriptural studies and reference books, children's books, audio visual, and many other categories. You can browse our collection at the link.

Offer flowers in church. Parishioners are welcome to bring flowers to place before the icons at anytime, whether it is for a special feast or for a special prayer intention. Generally, you should offer a bouquet for both Christ and his Mother, but there are times when one might only bring flowers for a particular saint (e.g. on St. Nicholas's feast day or for the Akathist to the Mother of God). Vases are available in the kitchen for you to use.

Donate time! We always need volunteers to help with children's education, church cleaning, library maintenance, and special events. Contact Fr. Matthew if you would like to serve in any way!
