Our Mission

At Saint Nicholas House, we seek to create a haven for children in Brookline, NH. Children are invited to step into a joy-filled atmosphere where they are loved unconditionally, whether they come to visit the animals, tend the gardens, create something in the workshop, bake, study, train in karate, enjoy a barn party, play in the woods, or simply enjoy a moment of peace.

Saint Nicholas House is offered as a free gift to our community. We believe that God treasures each one of us and loves us generously and freely, and desire that every child may know what it means to be deeply treasured and freely loved.

We also seek to be a house of prayer, in which the love of God is fanned into flame in our own lives through daily, weekly, and yearly rhythms of community prayer, guided prayer retreats, children’s catechesis, and spiritual direction.
