3 weeks before Christmas
3 weeks before Christmas, the
Knights were all meeting,
Sharing happy exchanges with smiles
St. Francis, the Council, began
with some praise
To the one God responsible for
their hearts all ablaze.
The role call of Officers, would
call out those men
Who lead this assembly again and again.
With Wilkins, and Hejka, Curran and
They work till they sweat and put
in many hours.
Gromala, and Parnin, and Mallia too
These men are all men that St.
And what to my wondering eyes
should I see,
But several new members at tonight's 1st
Now men of St. Francis, my
brothers, my friends,
The season's upon us, so go make
Be at peace with your brothers, and
family and kin.
Confess to be stronger and fight
Your work is all done with humility
In front of the Lord, you have little to hide.
So let me exclaim as I leave you
Merry Christmas to all, and to all
a good night.

founded in 1957. It is named after St Francis of Assisi, who was a
Saint for the deprived. The St Francis Council works closely with both
the St Clare Parish in Farmington Hills, Mi, and Our Lady Of Sorrows
parish in Farmington, providing funds for various projects while it's
members are active participants in their parish. Our major fund

Mothers And Unborn Baby Care (MAUBC) and the Campaign for People with
Intellectual Disabilities, (MI or Tootsie Roll) drive to
