Council Christmas Celebration
Gracious and loving God, we thank you for the gift of our Priests.  Through them,
we experience your presence in the sacraments.  Help our priests to be strong in
their vocation.  Set their souls on fire with love for your people.  Grant them the
wisdom, understanding and strength they need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. 
Inspire them with the vision of your Kingdom.  Give them the words they need to
spread the Gospel.  Allow them to experience joy in their ministry.  Help them to
become instruments of your divine grace.  We ask this through Jesus Christ, who
lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest.

A condensed version of the Supreme Knight's message to the Virtual Supreme Convention is now available. This concise summary of the work of the Order will help your council to make a compelling offer to every man on your council's prospect list to join us. If you haven't had the opportunity yet to watch it, you are encouraged you to do so and to share it with every member of your council…and every prospect! Most prospects - and probably most members - will say something like "I had no idea that the Knights of Columbus did all that!"
