On December 6, 1959 The Feast of St. Nicholas, thirty-six people attended the first service of worship at what was to become St. Nicholas Church.St. Nicholas was the legendary Fourth century Bishop of Myra (in Asia Minor). Although little is known about his life, he was revered as the patron saint of diverse groups such as children, scholars, merchants, and seafarers.Today, St. Nicholas Church represents the diversity and vitality of South Florida. Our parish family includes retirees, young families, singles, and we welcome all ages in between. Our shared worship of God (our “common prayer”) is a joyful celebration of our Christian heritage offered through many voices, ages, backgrounds and points of view.
