Hi brother knights,
I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving and that you are doing well as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord.
For Christmas this year, we will give away the book “The Lamb’s Supper” by Scott Hahn. I want to extend a huge THANKS to all of the knights who have donated to the Evangelization Fund in order to make this program possible. Donations and pledges so far will erase the $1600 negative balance in the fund and help to pay for the 2016 Christmas Book giveaway.
The books are scheduled to be delivered on Monday, Dec I2 and we will put stickers in the books on Wed, Dec 14 starting at 7 pm in the lower church hall. I plan to arrive by about 6:15 pm to set up and get books out of the closet. I hope that you can come by for some Christmas cheer and help put stickers in some books. If you’d like to bring a few cookies or other treat to share, or if you have a favorite Christmas CD you’d like to hear while we work, either would be welcomed and most appreciated.
Also, as always, we will need help actually handing out the books after the Christmas Masses. It is especially important to have at least one person to act as the “captain” for each of the Masses. The captain simply makes sure the books are moved from the staging area (outside the school office) to the distribution tables (just inside the south exit and outside the main entrance) and then returned to the staging area after distribution is complete (this is not necessary if weather is good and if there is a Mass immediately following the one you work). Also, the captains make sure that volunteers are located at each of the three exits. If you know which Mass you will attend and can act as a captain and/or hand out books, please let me know. If you don’t know which Mass you will attend, but want to help, just go to the back of church after Communion. If you have any questions, please give me a call.
As always, I know I can rely on my brother knights to support this program. Thanks much, God Bless and Merry Christmas!
