STAR OF THE SEA COUNCIL ERECT CRECHE AT GROTTO
Grand Knight Peter Polo Sr along with council members Joe Torres, Hugh Cooksey, PGK Bob Worthing, Kevin Nielsen, & other council members erect the creche at Grotto Pizza on Rehoboth Ave. in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
DOES “CONSECRATION” APPLY TO US TODAY?
Families today face many struggles, cultural and personal, that accompany family life. Despite these struggles — and partly as a result of conquering them — families have great capacity for love and joy, a joy that is strengthened through the peace and truth found in Christ.
As Catholics, we understand that we have been chosen and called by God. The issue we face, just like in all the Bible stories, is how we respond to God’s call. Holiness in the eyes of God depends upon how we respond to his call.
One way to answer that call is by associating ourselves and our families with the perfect son Jesus Christ, Mary the perfect mother, and Joseph who is a model for every father. On December 26th, the Feast of the Holy Family, members of the congregation will be given the opportunity, through a short prayer, to consecrate themselves and their family to the Holy Family.

WE HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL COMMUNITY BREAKFAST SUNDAY DEC 5th
Photos of the December 5th breakfast coming soon!!!.
Within the framework of putting Faith in Action, members of Star of the Sea Council 7297 promote the spirit of Christmas in our homes, families, parish and community, to prompt our neighbors to shift from a preoccupation with materialism to the light of Christ and the spirit of giving.
Our Keep Christ in Christmas program includes providing the creche outside St. Edmond every year, setting up a Nativity scene in downtown Rehoboth Beach to remind everyone that Christ is the reason for the season, conducting a Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest for children in the parish, and making Christmas and religious articles and cards available to our parish limited to the cost of the articles and the contest.
STAR OF THE SEA KNIGHT'S ERECT PARISH CRECHE
The Saint Ann Bethany Beach Pro- Life Committee (as well as that of St. Edmonds) has secured the approval for Christmas Caroling at the Crèche around the Bandstand Saturday December 18th from 12:00 Noon - 2:00PM. “It is our purpose to give just attention to this Nativity Scene and let it be known that we Christians do appreciate the display to continue as it has for many years.”
Last year, the Knights of Columbus, Star of the Sea Council was successful in our litigation with the town of Rehoboth Beach. This allowed us to return to the practice of placing a Crèche’ at the Bandstand as had been done for many years. The Saint Ann Pro-Life Committee is asking for as much support as can be garnered for their efforts
Imagine being part of an organization that is making a difference and having fun doing it! The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization, made up of practicing Catholic men, 18 years of age or older. We are an organization like no other. We are Knights, guided by four core principles: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. We are men committed to acting on our faith and helping the world around us. We give meaning to our principles through a framework of activities encompassing fellowship and good works: Faith, Family, Community, and the Sanctity of Life.
We have a grassroots focus undertaking projects that will best serve our church, our families and our community. We are men of faith, guided not only by our belief in God and the Catholic Church, but also by our belief in each other and in ourselves. We are Knights of Columbus. For more information call our Membership Director Richard Litsey on his mobile at 713-725-9847.
18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
2 Peter 3:10
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
1 The LORD said to Job: 2 “Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!”
FAITH IN ACTION – FAMILY
Star of the Sea donates $300 to Rachel’s Vineyard. Too often the plight of those who have experienced abortion is over-looked. Rachel's Vineyard is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.
FAITH IN ACTION – COMMUNITY
The Knights donate $100 to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation. Star of the Sea Council 7297 tops off contributions made by our members individually. We hope to fuel the smiles of children at Christmastime.
Star of the Sea donates $500 to Little Sisters of the Poor. The Little Sisters have been serving the elderly poor for over 150 years, believing it is Jesus whom they care for in them. Many of our members have made individual contributions as well.
FAITH IN ACTION – FAITH
The Knights of Columbus emphasizes the need for our members to show our devotion to St. Joseph as a model for every father. Accordingly, Star of the Sea is joining with other parishioners for a rosary service to be held on Wednesday December 15th, directly following the 8:30 AM mass. Please join us.
