During the holiday season, especially after last year’s “lock-down” and the hardships due to the pandemic, there is a heightened awareness of people who are in need of help in a variety of ways.  The phone in the church office rings off the hook with calls from those looking for a little extra help for their families at Christmas.  Operation Saint Nicholas has helped over 40 families in and around the Capital District.

Operation Saint Nicholas is another opportunity for us, as a church community, to help people in their time of need.  At this time of year especially, we seem to count our blessings.  Let us help others count their blessings as well.

Consider helping out!  Any amount, large or small, can make a difference in someone’s life.  Be a part of the blessing and let St. Nicholas live in your heart.  (While the givers and the receivers will remain anonymous, you will be informed with basic information as to how your contribution helped.)
