St Joseph Singing Knights Caroling at Lakeshore and Madison Care Centers

 Our St Joseph Singing Knights of Council 9846 made our first two caroling engagements on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at the Lakeshore Care Center and The Madison Care Center, both seniors’ homes in Coquitlam.  We sang songs in our unique all male voices and recited Holy Bible verses to spread our message of Keep Christ in Christmas.   This was a very memorable and fulfilling experience for all of us participating knights as we spread the spirit of Christmas especially to our lonely seniors right at the onset of this year’s Advent season.

Our repertoire included God rest ye Merry Gentlemen, Do you hear what I hear?, Joy to the World, O Little of Bethlehem, Mary’s Boy Child / Oh My Lord (Medley), The First Noel, O Come all ye Faithful and Feliz Navidad.  Brother Knight Clem DeGobbi recited the bible verses while WPGK Bro Brian Derrick led as conductor.  GK Bro Ernie Alcala and guest instrumentalist Luke Picard provided guitar accompaniment.

Next stops:  Dufferin Care Center and Friendship Society in Port Moody on Saturday, December 9, 2017 (to be confirmed). In the spirit of fun and camaraderie and in the spirit of the message of Christmas, all brother knights of our council who are available and able are invited to join.

    Looks like a lot of fun! Well done Brothers, it is because of Christ we have ‘Christmas’ – I’m sure the residents of these centers were happier for the Season of giving and sharing.
