This year our Council decided to offer a $3500 Donation instead of the customary coats we have given in years past. With Hurricane Irma passing nearby this September, many of the parishioners of St. Michael’s were impacted financially by damage to the local farms, where they earn a living. Sr. Gema asked for us to help her families with a donation in lieu of Coats for 2017. Our Council heartily agreed.

In an increasingly secular world, many Catholics are faced with the difficulty of sharing the faith. With the bustle of Christmas shopping and the frequent removal of religious imagery from Christmas displays, it seems that communities have forgotten the incredible gift of Christ and the beauty of his birth. Facing similar concerns when first introducing Christ to the New World, Franciscan missionaries in the 16th century found that simple re-enactments of the story of Christ’s birth could touch the hearts of those they encountered. The Spanish missionaries referred to these ceremonies as Las Posadas — meaning “the inns” or “the shelters” — as they gave emphasis to Mary and Joseph’s search for shelter before Our Savior’s birth. “The tradition of the Posada helps us to remember the first Christmas in a way that unites people of faith from throughout the American continent,” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. “This event will bring together people of many cultures, highlighting the fact that faith and the celebration of Christmas transcend any differences we may have.”
