The Order of Saint Nicholas safeguards one of the great secrets of Christmas: the identity of Santa Claus. Saint Nicholas showed us that our gifts bring joy to the world. To live like Nicholas, to become Santa Claus, we must first make three promises:
To Serve: We serve others with childlike wonder and joy.
To Give: We unconditionally give gifts of our time, talents, and treasure. Everything you do can be a gift to another.
To be Loyal: We are a secret group. Do not share the secrets of the Order, but be ready to guide someone into the Order when they are ready to take on the Mantle of Santa Claus.
1. Support the order during our annual Kickstarter Campaign, joining at whatever level is comfortable to you, OR
2. Apply by email to the prior and pay annual dues at the whatever level is comfortable for you.
When you join the Order, you will receive:
1. As a Follower of Saint Nicholas: Your name added to the Roster, the address and password to the Order’s website, and an annual email charge from the Prior.
2. As a Companion of Saint Nicolas: all Follower benefits, plus a physically mailed, signed and sealed beautiful document that describes your membership along with an attached St. Nicholas medallion.
3. As an Acolyte of Saint Nicholas: all Follower and Companion Benefits, plus a copy of the book, Giving Every Good and Perfect Gift, the story of Saint Nicholas, so you may share his story and how it can become your story too.
These documents are invaluable when consoling a questioning child about the credibility of Santa Claus because they prove that YOU are Santa Claus…just like me, and countless others before us. The Order also provides a means for your child to enter, thereby empowering them to give freely, in the spirit of Christ, and with secrecy so that no one but the Order knows our work.
A short ceremony between parent and child to welcome them to lifetime of giving.
