St. Nicholas, bishop of Myra

St. Nicholas, a fourth-century bishop of the Turkish town named Myra, was famously dedicated to works of generosity and charity. He is the patron saint of children and sailors, among others: His feast day is Dec. 6. At the end of the first week of Advent, Dec. 7, Good Shepherd Books and Gifts in Fort Wayne offered the opportunity to meet “St. Nick.”
