KNIGHTS CORNER – OCTOBER 22, 2017

Thank you to everyone that joined us for breakfast last Sunday morning. I apologize for running out of some items like bacon and potatoes, and I promise to buy more for the next breakfast. I also promise to have biscuits on the line to cover with the sausage gravy. I’m certain that no one went hungry for there were plenty of eggs, sausage and pancakes available right up until closing the serving line at 11:30.

We are still learning with each breakfast that we serve. Much of our cookware and serving equipment was left in our old hall, per sales agreement, but we are replacing the most important items as we see a need.

Due to the comments received, we have decided to continue these breakfasts the fourth Sunday of each month. However, since the fourth Sunday in November is Thanksgiving and in December, Christmas Eve, we will resume serving breakfast the fourth Sunday of every month in January. Make it your New Year resolution to have Breakfast with the Knights every month. See you in January! ! !

We are also in discussion to add a Dinner meal in conjunction with a Friday Mass. Let us know if you would be interested.

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.
