After a successful Breakfast with Santa 0n Sunday morning, our St Joseph Singing Knights participated in the Parish Concert on Sunday night that was well attended and well participated. We are proud of our dedicated Singing Knights for a well applauded performance at the Concert. We hope our message of Keep Christ in Christmas came across through our Bible verses and Christmas songs during our performance.

We are all blessed!
Our Breakfast with Santa was a huge success. Thanks to our pastor, Fr. Thomas Arackal for encouraging the parishioners from the 9:00 a.m. mass. It was record turn out as many came to have picture taking with Santa and partake of our pancake breakfast. (See pictures and more to follow.)
Thanks to our ever faithful and dedicated knights who came to cook, serve, and entertain the guests. Special thanks of course go to Bro Terry O’Neill, who reprised his annual role as Santa Claus and Bro Eleazar Sager and his daughter for their professional photo shoot and booth.
