If you are looking for a place to go on St. Nicholas Sunday (December 9), try St. Nicholas Episcopal Church in Germantown, Maryland.

Our 10am service includes a visit from St. Nick himself (Nicholas, Bishop of Myra), a special St. Nicholas hymn, and other attractions, followed by our ever-popular Christmas Cookie Social.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
