“Journeying Together in Christ” – We celebrated the Fiftieth Anniversary of St. Nicholas Catholic Church with a year of special Jubilee Liturgies and events that included the installation of a new stained glass replica of the Holy Spirit dove from St. Peter’s Basilica above the altar and a pilgrimage to the ancient church of Bishop Nicholas in Demre, Turkey and the Holy Land. Fr. Venancio Balarote became the first American priest to celebrate Mass in the church of our patron saint, Bishop Nicholas of Myra.
The Jubilee year closed with an Outdoor Mass celebrated by the Most Rev. Francis DiLorenzo, Bishop of the Richmond Diocese, and was followed by a parish picnic.
Life Teen was formed for High School students and our first group of teens attended Catholic Heart Work Camp in the summer.
