Attention Everyone
INTERNATIONAL PILGRIM VIRGIN
STATUE OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA
St. Nicholas Church is Blessed to be able to Host
The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our
Lady of Fatima on Tuesday, August 11th
The miracles, favors, and single graces were so
numerous from the very beginning. Physical cures
attributed to the presence of the statue have been
documented many times. The changes in expression and
coloration, and even the pose of the statue have been
reported innumerable times. But, the important miracles
are the spiritual cures and gifts Our Lady bestows. The
sudden conversion of a stubborn heretic is a good
example. Another important miracle is the enlightenment
of someone who has resisted the idea of statues or the
idea of praying to saints. The spiritual miracles are
infinitely more valuable than the things we can see,
touch or measure. More information to come.
RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION
OF ADULTS (R.C.I.A)
Are you interested in learning more
about the Catholic faith?
Would you like to know how you can
become a Catholic?
Are you someone who has never been baptized?
Were you baptized in another Christian faith and
would like to explore the Catholic faith?
Were you baptized Catholic but never received
First Holy Communion and Confirmation?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, call
the Rectory at 215-463-1326.
The R.C.I.A. classes begin in September and are held on
Tuesday evenings at 7:30PM for one hour and continue until the
applicants are received in the Church at the Easter Vigil.
WITH THE HOT WEATHER UPON US
WE WOULD LIKE TO REMIND YOU:
Although the church does not require anyone to be
dressed in their “Easter finest” every week for Mass,
please remember that the way we dress for church is
oftentimes a sign of how important the celebration of the
Eucharist is to us. Overly revealing clothing, shorts or
bare midriffs are never appropriate.
ATTENTION
