Our Goal

The founder, Dr Jim Rosenthal says, “There is a bit of St Nicholas in all of us.” The St Nicholas Society, along with the St Nicholas Centre website, allows you to seek and find the amazing legends and miracles of this great man called Nicholas and we trust will inspire you to join us in our pledge to have Santa discover his roots. Dr Rosenthal says, “When you see a Santa Claus on the streets go to him and say that you know his real name and say hello St Nicholas!”
