The District will hold its fifth annual Christmas Card Art Contest, open to all high school (grades 9-12) students of Lasallian Schools in the District of Eastern North America, we’re looking for student art for the front of the District Christmas card. The card will go out to the Brothers and Brother Communities, Ministries, District Leaders, other Lasallian and District constituents.

This year’s theme is taken from Luke 2:13-14:

8 Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock.
9 The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear.
10 The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
11 For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.
12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”
13 And suddenly there was a multitude of heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
