The contest, which starts this week at All Saints, will allow young people in the community to engage their creative talents and imaginations while encouraging them to think about the true, spiritual meaning of Christmas.

Entries will be accepted at All Saints until December 13, 2013.  Posters will then be judged and winners be chosen in three age groups: K- 2, 3-5, and 6-8.  Entry forms may be accessed online via the link below:

The 4th Degree ceremony was followed by a reception at the Amber Room Colonnade.

Msgr. Robert Weiss, Pastor at St. Rose of Lima in Newtown, was honored at the dinner and gave an inspiring speech.

Thanks to those Sir Knights who dressed in regalia or came to observe the exemplification!
