Keep Christ in Christmas Published by: Dane Jurkovic On: 11/09/2014 Under: Community
KCIC Michigan will kick off the 2014 season with a challenge to every Council in Michigan. Let this be the year that the True message of Christmas is Preached and Heard by all. This First is a day of Honor to Christ. Second, a day for Family, and Third, an Opportunity to Share the Christmas Message. Knights are uniquely positioned to make this happen and you can Leverage your Community Influence to make a difference in a very Positive way. 1/ Find out who the contact person is for the Billboard company that serves your community. Meet with, and find out what their Public Relations program is all about. 2/ Arrange for a KCIC Billboard to be posted for the month of December displaying your Parish name and Council name. 3/ Order the KCIC Billboard poster stock from KCIC Michigan. 4/ Purchase a starter case of Keep Christ in Christmas Cards and sell them after Masses the 4 weeks before Christmas. Profits from the Card sales should come pretty close to paying for your Billboard, and you get to infuse the True message of Christmas into your Community.
Your Council will be mailed further information by mid-summer. Plan NOW to engage the Community with the REAL Christmas message, the one that keeps Christ as the focal point of Christmas. Use your influence as Knights of Columbus to stand against the secularization and the dumbing down of our Holy Christmas season. And remember: it is NOT a holiday, it is a Holy Day.
