Our Class Saint

St Nicholas. Patron Saint of Children. Feast day is 6th December.

St Nicholas was a Bishop who devoted himself to caring for the poor and protecting children. He was a defender of truth and justice and during the persecution of Christians, he upheld the divinity of Christ. St Nicholas is an important figure in The Netherlands where, on his feast day, children put out shoes for St Nicholas to fill with gifts. Dutch immigrants took the legend and traditions of St Nicholas with them to the USA along with his nickname Sinterklaas which eventually became Santa Claus and part of the Christmas holiday.  

St Nicholas, pray for us
