St. Nicholas of Myra Catholic Church – Welcome
Time to Gather, Time to Heal, Time to Love
Considering that many people, because of age or a medical condition, are advised not to come to church during this outbreak, or may prefer to stay home because of fear of becoming infected, the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass remains in effect until further notice. The Diocese of Fall River will be submitting the new protocols and guidelines for the Liturgical practices. Please check back soon for the updates.
On August 18th, Fr. David Deston will be joining St. Nicholas of Myra and Annunciation of the Lord as Administrator.
Fr. David Nunes will be Parochial Vicar for St. Nicholas of Myra and Annunciation of the Lord. I know they will enjoy working with all the parishioners here at St. Nicholas of Myra and Annunciation of the Lord.
We welcome you to our St. Nicholas of Myra Parish, website. Our parish is a vibrant faith community which offers many opportunities for people to live out their Catholic Christian Faith. I hope that you will find the information and resources on our website to be helpful. If I can be of assistance to you in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. David Deston

The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.
Faith formation is a vital element of the Catholic life as we grow in knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he gave us. A deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and through the Trinity to the Church and our family, friends, neighbors, parish, and community. Such faith formation is not just for children, but for all of us as we grow as Catholics. Our parish has many opportunities for faith formation that we encourage you to explore.
Another way to participate in our parish life are the various parish ministries, including altar servers, and Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist; also youth ministry, men’s and women’s groups, Knights of Columbus, St. Vincent de Paul Society to name just a few. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities for getting involved in ministry. For information regarding these ministries and groups please refer to the Ministries & Groups booklet. A Faithful past; a Hopeful Future.
With so many ways to be part of parish life, you’ll want to stay informed by regularly reading the weekly bulletin. Click here for our mass schedule.
