Sixth Advent Candle Lighting at St. Nicholas - 12/23/18

On Sunday, December 23, the sixth candle of the Advent Season was lit by Aurora, with the help of her Mom, Larissa Mascari.  The adult scriptural reading was done by Pat Grammes, Sunday School Director, and the student verse was done by Elizabeth Hockman.  The sixth candle is red to signify Holy Communion. It reminds us that Christ, Who came to Bethlehem and Who will come again at the end of time, comes to us now in the great Sacrament of His Presence, i.e., Holy Communion.  The reason He was born in Bethlehem was that we might allow Him to come and be born in the manger of our hearts.
