KNIGHTS CORNER – June 17, 2018

Today we honor fathers. Those quiet heroes who held us lovingly in their arms, changed our diapers and helped us to walk, ride a bike and play catch. They loved our mothers and worked to make a loving home. Although mothers are credited with raising children, a supporting father makes her job just a bit easier. A good father provides guidance as we grow and discipline when required in a loving manner. And if he does a good job, he might even earn the coveted title of “Dad”. The Knights of Columbus wish a happy Father’s Day to all the dads in our Parish. In recognition of all that you do in order to be called “Dad”, the Knights invite you to have breakfast as our guest on Father’s Day.

Our regular Fourth Sunday Breakfast was pre-empted by a retreat in Father Conen Hall next weekend. This also gave us an opportunity to honor all our fathers on Father’s Day. Yes, we are serving our breakfast one week earlier than normal with all the regular favorites. Join us after the nine o’clock mass for good food and fellowship with your fellow parishioners from 10:00 until 11:30. DON’T FORGET THAT DADS EAT FREE.

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.
