2020 Keep Christ in Christmas Art Contest


The Tablet, in collaboration with the Archbishop John Hughes Council of the Knights of Columbus, invites youth to express their faith through art by participating in this year’s DIGITAL Christmas art contest.

Express your faith through art with the theme:
“Keep Christ in Christmas” in connection to any part of Matthew 5: 6-9

“Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

  1. Thank you for having this contest! It was a fun thing for my daughter to do while we were all home for Christmas break (and couldn’t travel to see family). Happy new year!
