The Knights of Columbus Bishop O'Sullivan Council #1648 has hung a sign at St. Patrick Church in Apalachicola, reminding visitors and passersby of the reason for the season.

Grand Knight Jim Campagna said the sign, which reads “Keep Christ in Christmas,” is being displayed “in response to signs put up all over America by various atheist and hate groups, declaring ‘Who needs Christ in Christmas? Nobody does.’

“The Knights of Columbus Council 1648 have an answer to those who demean Christ in so many different ways,” he said. “Who needs Christ in Christmas? The Knights of Columbus do, as well as all Christians in Apalachicola.”
