  Knights of Columbus Monthly Meeting


October 25, 2017

Rosary at 7:45 - Meeting 8:00

The four principles of the Knights of Columbus are Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.  Belonging to the Knights you are one of nearly 2 million men across the world whose principle work involves serving the underprivileged.  Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said….”We can reach half way around the globe to help those in need and we can reach to our neighbor next door. And we do that every day.  That makes us witnesses to our faith.”

As a member of this Catholic fraternity, we have the opportunity to put our faith into action and serve Christ in a tangible way.  During these past few weeks, a handful of 1233 council members and I, have been reaching out to recruit new members.  The response from people when asked to join is always interesting.  Some positive and some negative.  In my opinion, all Catholic men of our parish should be members our fraternity. As members, I feel it’s our responsibility to educate non-members of the organization’s purpose.  I challenge all of you to reach out and welcome anyone to join. 

Chili Feed November 17th.Our Council will host the chili feed this year at the Candle Light Christmas Parade, Friday November, 17th.  Proceeds will go to support those in our area answering the call to religious vocations.  We will be calling on members of group #7 to help with this event.  Those members include….Brandon Baller, Cody Christensen, Jimmy Christensen, Bill Christensen, Don Feilmeier, Bob Hamilton, Dan Gildersleeve, Francis Gubbles, Dan Heiman, Corey Hochstein, Tyler Jansen, Daniel Kathol, Delon Kathol, Kevin Kathol, Tucker Lammers, John Lange, Bob Lauer, Allen Leise, Derrick Leise, Tom Moser, Jim McGregor, Matt Steffen, Daryl Sudbeck, Dave Vlach.  Please say yes when helped to ask.

Knights of Columbus Sets goal of saving 1 million unborn lives

The knights of Columbus is taking its popular and successful ultrasound program to the next level with the goal of saving 1 million unborn lives with the help of technology that helps mothers choose life over abortion.  

Since 2009 the Knights have funded ultrasound machines to pregnancy care centers.  To date we have placed 829 units in pregnancy care centers or mobile medical units across the country.  

Statistics show that nearly 90% of women change their mind about having an abortion after they see an ultra sound image of their baby.  

Supreme Knight Carl Anderson has stated that If we can have 1000 machines in use by the time the ultrasound program reaches its 10th anniversary in 2019, it is estimated that that the program will reach its goal of saving 1 million unborn babies.  Part of our annual dues go directly to support such programs.
