"The Catholic Diocese of Richmond is stepping forward in an historic journey to raise a minimum of $65 million in its first-ever comprehensive capital and endowment campaign. Many years of studying the pastoral and financial realities we face as a Church have resulted in this diverse Case for Support. As a result of this unprecedented effort, our hope and prayer is to realize tremendous positive change in the life of the Church, while also preparing very thoughtfully for the future.The Campaign Case for Support provides essential funding for eleven ministries and programs under four major areas." Click here to see how funds from the campaign will be used at St. Nicholas.
 






St. Nicholas parish has much to be grateful for as we surpass our goal of $1.35 million in the Living Our Mission Campaign! If you have not yet made your pledge, please prayerfully consider joining in this important mission. Pledge cards are located on the credenzas in the commons and can be returned to the parish office or placed in the collection plate. The support of each parish family will allow us to tend to the future needs of the parish.

The Year of Mercy

Pope Francis opened the Holy Door at St. Peter's Basilica on Tuesday, December 8th, marking the beginning of the Jubilee of Mercy. This jubilee calls on Catholics to reflect on the theme of mercy. "This Extraordinary Holy Year is itself a gift of grace," Francis said during the homily at the Mass. "To enter through the Holy Door means to rediscover the deepness of the mercy of the Father who welcomes all and goes out to meet everyone personally."

As you begin to celebrate the Jubilee of Mercy, be sure to check out the Catholic Diocese of Richmond's Year of Mercy Website for resources, news, events, and articles that we will make available as we receive them.

How will you celebrate the year of mercy?
