Christmas Bazaar & St. Nicholas at American Czestochowa

Christmas Bazaar & St. Nicholas at American Czestochowa

On December 9th, Our Lady of Czestochowa Polish School at our Shrine, organized an annual Christmas Bazaar. The Bazaar took place in the Shrine’s Cafeteria. It was also an opportunity to see St. Nicholas, who was giving sweet gifts to all the children. There were many vendors at this fair, who presented many Polish products and decorative items related to the upcoming Christmas.

Among many booths there were Christmas tablecloths, olive tree sculptures, jewelry, winter clothing, Christmas wreaths, ornaments, as well as delicious Polish sweets – pastry, cakes and candy – prepared by the parents from the Polish School. On that day there was also an opportunity to meet Saint. Nicholas, who gave sweet gifts to the children at the cafeteria. St. Nicholas arrived at the end of the Holy Mass for children, celebrated in the Chapel of Our Lady of Częstochowa, which was presided by Fr. Mikolaj Socha, OSPPE. Father Mikolaj encouraged children during the Eucharist to prepare well for Christmas and emphasized that all the decorations and beautiful setting of the holiday is to testify to our joy of the Nativity of Jesus Christ.
