A collection for Diakonia

There is a tradition in St. Nicholas parish of Amsterdam. In periods of fasting, the collectants during Liturgy apporoach the parochians with two collection baskets. One of them is for church needs, another one is for a charity goal. By decision of the parish council, the collection of the 2017 Navity fast was for care-receivers of our Diakonia. More then EUR 1,700 has been raised in five Sundays. We hearthfully thank the clerics and parochians of St. Nicholas church for their generous support!
