Fr. Steven's Mother's Day Homily
On the fourth Sunday after Pascha, we remember the healing of the paralytic at the pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem. Just like our mothers who make frequent bedside visits to their children, FAITH became the new mother to this man lifting him from his sickbed. Happy Mother's Day to all of our faithful mothers, grandmothers, and godmothers at Saint Nicholas!. Make sure to "subscribe" to our Youtube Channel for all of our past sermons and video content!
Light a Candle Online for the Mothers in Your Life
This Coronavirus quarantine has been a trying one for many of us. However some of the heaviest burdens have fallen on our mothers as a result of the Shelter-in-Place order. Always counted on to manage the homes, many of our mothers now find themselves juggling more responsibilities and no longer have any external outlets or sources of support (including weekly Church services). This month show your appreciation to all of our mothers (and those who hope to be mothers) by lighting a candle in their honor on Sunday mornings. Simply click the link below and make sure to write the names of the special women in your life that you want us to pray for in Church.
