 Children' Programs Tab

Our annual Spirit of St. Nicholas Ball has given us 32 years of fond memories and lasting impact on generations of people in need. This year, The money raised from this year’s Spirit of Saint Nicholas Ball will support all Catholic Charities Programs, in particular those that respond to the Gospel verse of Matthew 25:35-36.

On Friday, December 3rd, we will celebrate together in person with music, memories, a look at the life and legacy of St. Nicholas, and more.

We hope to see you at this years’ event!
