K of C St. Matthew Council 14360 sponsored the Third Annual Christmas Tree and Crèche lighting at St. Matthew Church on Sunday, November 27. The council provided refreshments and the St. Matthew Adult and Youth Choirs sang Christmas carols. On top of that, special guest Msgr. Tom Powers, the Vicar General from the Diocese of Bridgeport, blessed the crèche and Christmas tree.
The Christmas tree and crèche lighting was started by Council 14360 as part of the Knights of Columbus Keep Christ in Christmas initiative that is designed to remind everyone of the real and true meaning of Christmas.
“This was truly a great way to kick off the Advent season as we prepare for the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day,” said Grand Knight Scott Criscuolo.
