It's a Wrap!
Christmas Drive and Coats for Kids a Success
  • With a ton of help from Knights, families, parishioners, clergy and more, the annual Christmas Basket Program was very successful. We ended up buying, wrapping, sorting and delivering gifts for over 125 Livermore families over the past two weeks, with the most intense and enjoyable period during the last four days. In addition, we coordinated the Coat for Kids program with the Christmas Gift program and were able to deliver our full allotment of almost 100 winter coats to Livermore kids just in time for the winter weather that set in this week. Thanks to everyone that helped bring a little bit of charitable giving to those in our community!

4th Degree Exemplification Signup Now Open
All 3rd degree Knights! You should SignUp for the upcoming 4th degree exemplification to be held in Rohnert Park on February 2nd. This is the best of the four membership ceremonies and closes out the 4th pillar of our Order - Patriotism. The event happens once per year in Rohnert Park and is the best way to become a Sir Knight. Applications will be available at the business meeting this Thursday.

Note: For those new members who are 1st degree Knights, you have an excellent opportunity to complete all three remaining degrees in a short time frame because a 2nd/3rd degree will be happening in Dublin on January 12th. It would be perfect to attend the 2nd/3rd degree in January and the 4th degree on February 4th.
