Bishop Megan at St. Michael's Day School for St. Nicholas Day

It was a beautiful, sunny St. Nicholas Day

"Can any of you share with me something you could do to be kind or generous in the weeks before Christmas?"
The three bags of gold coins given by St. Nicholas

Bishop Megan observed the Feast of St. Nicholas, Dec. 6, by visiting the students and teachers of St. Michael's Episcopal Day School in Carmichael.

Vested in red and gold, she made her way classroom to classroom, telling the story of St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra. Bishop Nicholas was known for his kindness and generosity. With props in hand, Bishop Megan told of the way that St. Nicholas gave three bags of gold coins to a family, one for each of their daughters, so they would not have to be sold into a life of servitude.

In honor of St. Nicholas' gift, Bishop Megan gave each student a gold coin, made of chocolate. It was a wonderful morning spent with the youngest members of the Church of Christ, and their teachers.

Bishop Megan gifted each child a gold coin to commemorate St. Nicholas' gift

The students were
enraptured by Bishop Megan's storytelling

Thank you to the Rev. Canon Lynell Walker, Chaplain; Ms. Mary Heise, Head of School; and the teachers and staff at St. Michael's for facilitating our visit
