St. Nicholas celebrated in Thornhill

Sunday, December 7th was a special day for the children of the Cathedral Mission church in Thornhill. Following the liturgy, while the faithful sang the beautiful hymn "O kto, kto, ......", Bishop John "played" St. Nicholas and with a basket in hand, walked down to the children and gave out typical St. Nicholas goodies. There were 4 children present and they received oranges, nuts, candies, chocolates, colouring books and stickers. You could see the children's eyes sparkle and they all had smiles from ear to ear as soon as they saw Bishop come around with the basket. Seeing the faces of the children makes the work that goes into preparing the gifts all worthwhile.
