Sweatshirts for Holy Cross Children’s Services
Knights of Columbus council#600 collected 15 sweatshirts wrapped in Christmas wrap from generous OLR parishioners. Thank you! Grand Knight, Greg Harris, delivered these additional gifts to Holy Cross Children’s Services (HCCS – formerly Boysville) in Detroit. That brought the total to 33 sweatshirts delivered from OLR knights and parishioners. This is truly living the advent spirit of preparing for our Lord and Savior.
Keep Christ in Christmas Poster Contest
The Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest was a huge success this year. The participation of the children from Our Lady of Refuge was the largest since we started the contest. Posters were hung in social just before the breakfast with St. Nick on Dec. 16. The final judging was completed on Dec. 17. Council#600 is very proud to announce the 2017 winners. Congratulations to these artists and to all who participated.
