Keep Christ in Christmas Poster Contest

Once again, the Knights of Columbus are hosting the keep Christ in Christmas Poster contest open to all children ages 5-14. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to be creative, to be involved in their faith, and to have fun while experiencing the true meaning of Christmas. Posters must 11×17. If pastels, chalk, or charcoal are used, the poster must be laminated or covered in clear plastic. Posters must be submitted to the school office or parish office by December 19th.

Prizes will be awarded for winning entries. Winning entries will also be advanced to the district and then to the state and hopefully internationally again. St. Bridget of Sweden Parish has had 3 International winners in the past two years. This year could be your year to go all the way to the finals!

Entry forms and 11×17 paper are available at the doors of the Church or you can download an entry form here.

Congratulations to our Keep Christ in Christmas Winners!!

First Place in our ages 5 to 7 category goes to Nina Pepe:

First place in our ages 8 to 10 category goes to Genevieve Cooney:

If you know these budding young artists or their families, please stop them after Mass in the coming weeks and congratulate them on their remarkable achievement.

Memorial Day Veterans Motorcade

Because of the pandemic, the traditional Memorial Day Parade has been cancelled, but a motorcade honoring Veterans will be held in its place. Our council is proud to have two Veterans in the parade. Bruce Humiston and Vin Masotta will
be in a light blue Mercedes convertible.

The route through town is listed below, but for our parish the best place to view the motorcade is in front of St. Thomas Becket Church on North Brooksvale Rd.
