The very beginning of December will bring us to the start of Advent, the time of anticipation and preparation for the birth of our Saviour! The Council’s annual ‘Light Up For Christ’, the lighting of the church Nativity Scene, will take place ahead of the first Advent Mass, the 5 p.m. Mass on December 2nd.
We have our Memorial Mass coming soon, to be followed by Pub Night. It may sound strange, but that will bring us close to the end of our liturgical year! Soon you will see Christmas Cards and Christmas cakes, but watch for the for the coming Nativity Exhibition in the church hall.
It is so easy to get caught in the rush of this time of year. We often hear “Keep Christ In Christmas” in our Knights of Columbus programs. Let that not be an empty phrase, but rather let us keep it as our focus.
I wish to thank all of you and your spouses, families and friends who have helped to make our recent events successful.
My prayer for Brother Knights and their families:
May we really focus on Christ in this season of peace and forgiveness.
