The St. Nicholas Chapter of the Confraternity of Christian Women was established in 1913. Along with the spiritual support members give one another, Christian Women handle the organization and administration of our Parish Groups. The Christian Women conduct the parish women’s quarterly meetings held at 8:00 pm on the first Sunday evening in the months of December, March, and June, and the second Sunday evening in the month of September. At these meetings, parish issues are discussed and a representative is sent to the Parish Council. If you are interested in joining, please call the Parish Office to find out who the current president is.
The Men’s Society conducts the parish men’s quarterly meeting at the same time as the Christian Women meet. At their meetings, they discuss issues regarding the parish and also send a representative to the Parish Council. On the first Sunday of every month, they, as a group, recite the rosary before Mass and sit in the front pews in church. If you would like to become a member, you can contact the parish office for more information.
