Knights of Columbus meet every 2nd and 4th Tuesday
Knights Hall 301 E. Brundage
A reminder we have our social night this Tuesday with a movie “Have A Little Faith” by book author Mitch Albom. We will take a few minutes to introduce new parishioner Dr. Jeff Wray dentist, currently renting in the knights building and an update/informational from Vince Mockensturm on the John Michael Talbot concert coming to Sheridan. REMEMBER THE MOVIE IS FOR EVERYONE IN THE PARISH, Enjoy popcorn, soda and a movie.
Chuck and Nikki Burgess are looking to adopt a 4 year old girl from Uganda. They are humbly asking for your help. attached is the low down on their story and three ways to help them out. Please consider making even a small $5.00 donation, I know often many of us have missed an opportunity to be a part of something good so lick an envelope, peel a stamp and send your support. Maybe you have an old set of golf clubs to offer to the garage sale?
All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles:
Charity - Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus show love for their neighbors by conducting food drives and donating the food to local soup kitchens and food pantries, by volunteering at Special Olympics, and by supporting, both spiritually and materially, mothers who choose life for their babies. Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God, compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day.
Unity – None of us is as good as all of us. Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that – together – we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. So we stick together…we support one another. That doesn’t mean that we always agree or that there is never a difference of opinion. It does mean that – as a Knight of Columbus – you can count on the support and encouragement of your brother Knights as you work to make life better in your parish and community.
Fraternity – The Venerable Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, in large part, to provide assistance to the widows and children left behind when the family breadwinner died – often prematurely. The Order’s top-rated insurance program continues to do this today, as do individual Knights, who last year gave more than 10 million hours of their time to assist sick and/or disabled members and their families. In the Knights of Columbus, we watch out for and take care of one another.
Patriotism – Members of the Knights of Columbus, be they Americans, Canadians, Mexicans, Cubans, Filipinos, Poles, or Dominicans, are patriotic citizens. We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics support their nations and are amongst the greatest citizens.
