Keep Christ in Christmas / Michigan

Knights of Columbus

Bishop Albers Assembly 0496 is the senior-most  4th Degree Assembly in the Lansing area. Currently at 235 members, it was chartered in 1965 and has grown and split four times to form four additional Assemblies. It is the home Assembly of SK Tom Wegener Former Supreme Director & PSD, SK Richard McCloy PSD and current State Secretary SK Bill Chasse..  Very active in the Lansing area, it represents St Gerard's Council 788, St Mary's Cathedral Council 11694, and St Michael's Council 7311 of Grand Ledge. The Assembly meets on the 3rd Tuesday at the Knights Hall in Lansing, MI located at 5300 N. Grand River. In 2014 we became the host Assembly of the Keep Christ in Christmas program for the state of Michigan..

As Knights we pride ourselves in being a Catholic men's organization that is involved in Civil Activities and Works of Goodwill. A Brotherhood of like believers that worship in kind and stand firmly in support of Clergy and Faith..  It is in that spirit that we come together in our conviction that Christmas is not just a holiday, but a 'Holy Day'. This season is special, reserved for all to contemplate the Greater Gift of Christ and His special Love for us. As the secular holiday steadily creeps over the true message of Christmas, we find it necessary to stand firm and use all available tools to defend this Sacred Season of Christmas. We must work tirelessly to protect this Holy Day.

   This is a battle that we must be engaged in..   This is a battle that must be won..   If not by us, then who..?  

You have an opportunity to share in the struggle by promoting the message in a very viable way. Make Religious Themed Christmas cards available which share the Christmas message with your Church family and Community. This is a proven fund raiser that is easy to implement..  Please contact us with questions..

Last Year we organized the display of 56 Keep Christ in Christmas Billboards and Banners around the State of Michigan that share the true message of Christmas. You are encouraged to join in this highly visible program. Please contact us for details..


The program will certainly make your Council or Assembly money, but the greater good comes from the promotion of the message: 'We stand First for Keeping Christ in Christmas'..

  Please Join us in this most worthy cause..
