We like to celebrate it in the parish and this year we joined with children at St Chrysostom’s School. Miss Lodge and Miss Turnbull’s after school clubs learned about St Nicholas and did activities related to him, then we came together with Fr Ian and lots of parents for a short celebration in the school hall.
Miss Lodge’s class had made for church the special scarf like robe that St Nicholas is seen wearing in icons and drawings of him. The children had all had a part in making the robe, which was then presented to Church.
Jack is seen modelling the robe here – and he also found out its special name – a new word for many of us – its an Omophor!
A lovely way to look forward to Christmas.
