Are you looking for a way to share the real meaning of the Christmas season with your community? The Knights of Columbus, Marian Council #3881 (Oakville, Ontario, Canada) has designed a lawn sign for you to do this! This sign is a great way to remind everyone that Jesus is the reason for the season.
This program is designed to oppose secular and commercial dilution of the true meaning of Christmas. Did you know that while over 70% of Canadians are Christian, we are usually barred from using public forums for displaying religious messages?
Despite protections in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, religious messages are routinely prohibited from public forums.
In Oakville, Ontario, Canada, the Knights of Columbus have attracted high profile media attention with their public “Keep Christ in Christmas” Campaign. A major part of this campaign are the lawn signs displayed on private property. These signs speak out for the over 70% of Canadians who are Christians.
The Council will make available to any willing Christian Church their “Keep Christ in Christmas” lawn signs at a cost of $10.00 per sign. These signs are printed on both sides for parishioners to display proudly on their property during the Christmas Season. This attractive 24″ x 16″ sign, featuring the message along with an original illustration of the nativity scene, is made of weatherdurable Coroplast. They can be put in a window or on the lawn using the included metal stand.
Also available in a 30″ x 60″ size which is suitable for churches, schools, council property and offi ces. Cost for the larger format sign is $250. Framing is required.
