FAMILIES from the Orthodox Christian churches in Louth and Grimsby came together recently to enjoy a St Nicholas Family Party hosted by St Aethelheard’s Church in Louth.
After the Divine Liturgy the families went to the Ayscough Hall where they enjoyed a buffet meal.
The Priest of the two parishes, Fr Michael Harry told the children the story of St Nicholas and they put their coins into a sock to make a collection for the Smile Charity.
The children then took part in various games while their parents enjoyed the chance to spend time and chat together.
At the end, the children went home with their own ‘golden coins’ and gifts.
