Grand Knights Christmas Message
Hello Brothers. I wanted to take a moment of your time to wish you and your loved ones a blessed, happy and safe Christmas. It has been a difficult year for everyone and for some it has been overwhelming for health reasons, for some the loss of a loved one and since early 2020, the pandemic. We are also being asked to minimize our Christmas gatherings. Things aren't easy right now.
This is the time to pray for each other and the rest of humanity. Let's remember those that may be lonely at this time of year and could use a phone call or those that are in need of our generosity. Remember to 'Leave No Neighbour Behind'. We have a light at the end of the tunnel from this pandemic - a vaccine. It may take time for everyone to get the shot but things will get better. Stay positive and 'carry on'. We will endure!
Take good care of each other and enjoy your loved ones and remind ourselves what Christmas is really all about. Thank you for all you do for our council, community, parish and each other. Thank you and God Bless.
Patrick Callaghan, Grand Knight
