Updated Calendar

Well, getting this calendar accurate has been a challenge.  But, I think we're in the home stretch.  The latest calendar can always be accessed by clicking the icon to the right.  Or, you can click here.  I'm going to bring a stack with me tonight.  I should have enough for everyone.  

Compassion Pregnancy Center

Our Council, in cooperation with 4 other parishes in District # 24 underwrote the purchase of a new ultrasound machine for Compassion Pregnancy Center.  This machine, three years of maintenance, support, and training will be a key resource helping families struggling with thoughts of abortion.  When you support the Knights, we can in turn help organizations in our own community.  Thank you for allowing us to support these worthwhile causes.  Pictured are Past Grand Knights John Cassidy, Jr and Ron Stec.

A week ago, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson attended the dedication of a mobile ultrasound unit in San Antonio. Donated as part of the K of C Ultrasound Initiative, such units have helped countless women to choose life, love and respect for their children.
But many other mothers have no support. They need our prayers and help – you can do your part by offering this prayer and supporting the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative
Help the world choose life today! Go to for details.

Membership Drives

Once you have a look at the calendar - go ahead, I'll wait - you'll notice we have several Membership Drives scheduled the last half of the calendar year.  Karrie Illner has had a bunch of recent pictures printed and updated our trifold board.  He did an excellent job!!  We can use this updated tool to help us attract new guys into the Order.  On the days we're having Membership Drives, please wear your K of C logo shirt to church.  Let's show our unity.  Do you have a friend at church that's not a member?  Ask them to join.  Do you have a friend at church that ** IS ** a member but we never see him?  Ask them to help!!  We have LOTS of activities! We're going to need some help. 


Respect Life 

As we are now in Respect Life Month of October, what better time to show our support of LIFE than by signing up to take the trip to Washington DC for the 44th Annual March for Life. This is an opportunity for us as Catholics & Knights of Columbus to ban together & show everyone our stance in Defending & Protecting the Sanctity of Human Life. 

We have reserved 2 Buses in hopes that we can provide service to many of you that are interested in attending.

Please visit the website or send all inquiries to for detailed information

Until next time, Vivat Jesus
