KNIGHTS CORNER – April 15, 2018

Most films currently being produced in Hollywood are worth neither our time nor price of admission. But an independent studio has produced a Christian-themed film I think checks both boxes. The movie “I Can Only Imagine” was recommended by a parishioner. The main character found faith at an early age. He chased a dream while running from an abusive relationship with his father. The film is a gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness. It illustrates that no one is ever too far from God’s love or from an eternal home in heaven. This film is a good representation of the first principal of the Knights of Columbus – Charity.

Here is an update to the report of our successful ‘Forty Cans for Forty Days’ food drive. We received an additional fifty seven cans on Easter to bring our total count to 1327 items donated to the Saint Vincent de Paul Food Pantry here at Saint Lawrence Church. Thank you once again to all the generous parishioners who donated non-perishable items.

Mark your calendars for our next Breakfast scheduled for April 22.

About the Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the mariner Christopher Columbus. Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to low-income immigrant Catholics, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, promoting Catholic education and actively defending Roman Catholicism in various nations.

There are 1,883,598 members in nearly 15,000 councils, with 302 councils on college campuses. Membership is limited to "practical" Catholic men aged 18 or older. Membership consists of four different degrees, each exemplifying a different principle of the Order. The Order is a member of the International Alliance of Catholic Knights.

Councils have been chartered in the United States (including the territories of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam), Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Panama, the Bahamas, Cuba, Guatemala, Saipan, South Korea, Ukraine, Lithuania, and on US military bases around the world. The Knights' official junior organization, the Columbian Squires, has over 5,000 circles and the Order's patriotic arm, the Fourth Degree, has more than 2,500 assemblies.

For their support for the Church and local communities, as well as for their philanthropic efforts, Pope John Paul II referred to the Order as a "strong right arm of the Church." In 2014, the Order gave over US$173 million directly to charity and performed over 71.5 million man-hours of voluntary service. Over 413,000 US pints (195,000 l; 344,000 imp pt) of blood were donated in 2010.

The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

K of C # 5290 will be meeting in Fr. Conen Hall cafeteria starting the 1st Thursday of 2017. We will work to help our parish family any way we can.

If you know any past Grand Knight or family member of a past Grand Knight, please let them know we have personal items for each Past Grand Knight or widow of a past Grand Knight that we would like to give the family.

 33 days to morning glory

 33 Days to Morning Glory

An extraordinary 33-day journey to Marian consecration - to Jesus through Mary - with four giants of Marian spirituality: St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Blessed Pope John Paul II.


Fr. Michael Gaitley masterfully summarizes their teaching, making it easy to grasp, and simple enough to put into practice. More specifically, he weaves their thoughts into a user-friendly, do-it-yourself retreat that will bless even the busiest of people. So, if you’ve been thinking about entrusting yourself to Mary for the first time or if you’re simply looking to deepen and renew your devotion to her, 33 Days to Morning Glory is the right book to read and the perfect retreat to make.
