My Brother Knights,
And the angel said unto them, Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people: for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord – Luke 2:10-11
With that powerful message to those simple shepherds the birth of our Lord and Savior was announced. Throughout all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season I encourage you take some time to reflect on that message from the angels and remember the true reason for Christmas. Also, please remember those less fortunate and keep them in your prayers throughout the Christmas season.
This month our Council will once again support the Un-Trim-A-Tree Project. This project provides Christmas gifts to over 800 children and 270 families in the Manassas and Manassas Park areas. A Christmas tree containing white gift tags will be located in the church foyer. I encourage all of you, as an act of Charity, to select a tag and help make Christmas a joyful experience for a needy child in our area. Your help is also needed to sort and distribute the gifts on Saturday December 20. Please contact Jeff Vallimont for more information.
Our annual Adult Christmas Party will be December 13 starting at 6:30PM. This is a free event for our Council and I would like to extend a personal invitation to you to join your Brother Knights and their guest as we celebrate Christmas. Please see the flyer at right for more information.
On behalf of myself, Teresa, Nikki and Allison we would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
As the council enters the month of December, we as Brother Knights and our family’s prepare for the month of Advent. The word Advent derives from the Latin word meaning coming. It is also a perfect time to prepare the Council hall with our annual Christmas decorating and setting up the new crèche. If you have a favorite Christmas Ornament that you would like to hang on the Christmas tree in the hall, please stop by the hall on Saturday December 6th at 2:00pm to put it on the tree.
Let all the children know that on December 13th Santa will be at the Council Home at 9:00am. This is a good time for all the boys and girls to eat breakfast with Santa. There will also be other activities for the children as well during the morning. That same evening if you have children, find a babysitter and come to the adult Christmas party. This is our annual tradition that we as Brother Knights and our wives or significant others get an opportunity to come together and enjoy some wonderful food along with games. So mark your calendar for this event, I am sure that this will be a night that we will remember for the rest of the year.
I want to end this message by saying Merry Christmas to all of George Brent Council and have a safe and prosperous new year from the Henslee family.
