Last Friday, January 11th, 2019, the Knights of Columbus helped out in taking down the Christmas decorations in church that included two giant christmas trees, four smaller christmas trees and a Nativity Creche. The takedown culminated another good season of the celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Christmas officially ended on Sunday, January 13, 2019.
Our Christmas preparations commenced early in September 2018 when we started selling Keep Christ in Christmas car magnets and Christmas cards as well as preparing the songs, chords and books for the Keep Christ in Christmas carols of the Singing Knights. November 2018 was a month for practice for the singing knights (as well as the sale of Charity Appeal tickets and Christmas cards and car magnets).
At the onset of the Advent season, our Singing Knights went caroling to spread the message of Christmas – Keep Christ in Christmas. We sang Christ-centered Christmas songs at four seniors’ homes and participated in the Parish Concert. We are certainly glad we are continuing this annual tradition of our council for the fourth consecutive year.
