Keep Christ in Christmas!

Welcome to Council 9846’s Keep Christ in Christmas Competition page.

Sixty-three entries were submitted to our Christmas Poster “Keep Christ in Christmas” contest.  For us, that translates to 63 kids or teens in 4 schools and the surrounding parishes and more than 50 families focusing on CHRIST in the celebration of Christmas this year.   We fervently hope that the involvement of the schools and families in this contest will lead us to attaining our objective of spreading the true meaning of Christmas and that is the celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Our panel of three judges comprising our pastor Fr. Richard Au, CWL head Louanne Richards and KOC Council 9846 Grand Knight Mark Pan had lively discussions and debates about which posters were the winners. After they had judged and placed the winners, it was the turn of the parishioners choice to choose which were their favourites!

And now congratulations to the winners!
