The Feast of St. Nicholas is celebrated the first Sunday in December at the 5 pm Mass at the Church of the Little Flower in Bethesda, MD.
Due to social distancing restrictions, attendance will be limited and there will be no reception afterwards.
Please contribute to our annual Gift Drive to benefit children in need in our Archdiocese. This year, we have three ways to safely make a donation:
(1) Purchase gift cards online here.
(2) Drop off gift cards you have purchased in the offertory basket during any Little Flower Mass now through December 13.
(3) Bring an unwrapped toy/gift for a child ages 6-12 to the Catholic Charities collection truck that will be parked in front of Little Flower Church on:
> Saturday, December 5 from 4:00-6:00 pm, or
> Sunday, December 6 from 8:00am-1:00pm.
Please note that these are the only times we can accept toys!
Thank you for your generosity in this year of great need!

Our Chaplain, Monsignor Vaghi, will offer his thought-provoking spiritual reflections during his First Thursday talks.
This year's theme is "The Eternal Word in a COVID-19 World."
The theme last year was "Back to the Basics of the Faith."
The themes in past years, inspired by the writings of St. Francis de Sales, were "The Devout Life: A Snapshot" and "The Devout Life: An Ongoing Gift."
To listen to recordings of Msgr. Vaghi's past theological reflections, please visit the Chaplain's Corner.
