A few Knights also repaired the kneeling rails in our church while others set up the nativity outdoors!
Submitted by Pierre Chartier St. Patrick's Fallowfield Council 11271 Our Council has designed two separate, practical items which are being sold to our parishioners as a parish fund raising project. To help facilitate the message of "social distancing" we designed protective face masks with our theme of "Keep Christ in Christmas" silk screened on them as well as a practical tea towel with the same slogan in six different designs. Two great stocking stuffers that help to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas!

"Many hands make for less work"! All of them wore face masks to assure that our pandemic medical guidelines were followed. Great camaraderie was had by all!
